PIKEVILLE, Ky. - The Pike County Health Department has released its notice of inspections of local restaurants and other eating establishments in the Pike County area.


Two inspections a year are normally carried out by the Pike County Health Department to ensure food storage, preparations, personnel, restrooms, water and other health conditions are within the guidelines of the health department.


A perfect score is 100 percent and points are subtracted if any violations are found.


A score of 85 percent to 100 percent indicates compliance within the guidelines of the health department.


A score of 70 percent to 84 percent means the establishment will be reinspected within 30 days. If problems are not corrected by that point, closure is a possibility.


A score of 60 percent to 69 percent means the establishment will have five days to request a hearing to show why it should be allowed to continue operations.


A score of 50 percent or less means an automatic closure of the establishment if the conditions pose an immediate health risk to the public. According to the health department, “certain conditions and practices are considered potentially serious threats to the public’s health.” Those threats require a correction within 10 days.


The following inspections were conducted during the month of May 2014:
