Fredericksburg Restaurant Inspections: Violations at 10 Schools


FREDERICKSBURG, VA — Officials from the Rappahannock Area Health District inspected several restaurants across the region from Oct. 13 to Oct. 19. More than 20 restaurants recorded violations in Stafford, Fredericksburg, and the surrounding area.

As coronavirus restrictions continue to fluctuate around the state, health inspectors are returning to conduct restaurant inspections in person. However, some visits, such as those for training purposes, can be conducted virtually.

Violations at restaurants typically focus on factors that can contribute to food contamination. The local health department can also perform a re-inspection to ensure that possible violations have been corrected.

For every observed violation, the inspector provides a specific corrective action that can be completed to rectify the violation. Sometimes these are simple, and violations can be corrected during the course of the inspection.

Depending on the results of the inspection, the health department can pursue several actions. They can issue a permit for the restaurant to continue serving food, they can schedule a follow-up inspection to determine if violations have been rectified, or they can temporarily shut down an establishment until certain issues are solved.
