An A grade (90 to 100 points) is considered “generally superior”, a B grade (80 to 89) as “generally acceptable” and a C grade (70 to 79) as “generally not acceptable “And needs a follow-up inspection. A facility will be temporarily closed if it is below 70 or has a critical violation that cannot be resolved immediately.
