Priority violations unable to be corrected at the time of the inspection must be corrected within 14 days and verified by a reinspection. A safe, ask alternative procedure must be in place until the final correction is completed. Reinspections are not scored.

To pass inspection, a restaurant must receive a score of 70. Customers will find a placard on the restaurant entrance that indicates if a facility passed the last routine health inspection.
