Restaurants, Catering & BnB

Environmental Health staff conduct two unannounced health inspections a year at all restaurants, catering companies and bed & breakfasts in Washington County. We also look into consumer complaints. If staff identify a public health risk, a follow-up inspection will take place. Inspections focus on food temperatures, food preparation practices, worker hygiene, dishwashing and sanitizing, equipment and facility cleanliness.

Restaurant Inspection Scores are public record. A restaurant must receive a score of 70 to pass the inspection. Consumers can find a sign near the restaurant entrance that indicates if a facility passed the last health inspection.

For more information about the food code, visit the Food Code Adoption page.
