Category II: Violations in this category are considered critical operational and maintenance violations which can increase the potential for causing food-borne illness. these violations must be corrected within 72 hours.
Category III: Items in this category are conductive to good management practices which maintain a healthy environment for the consumer. Violations in this category are expected to be corrected by the next routine inspection performed by the Health Department.
Scoring: Each food establishment is given a score of 1-100 in each of the three categories. The three scores are averaged together to become the final score noted on the inspection sheet.
