The Greenup County Health Department regularly inspects restaurants and other permitted establishments. During these inspections, food, storage and preparation, personnel, restrooms, water and other conditions are checked. A perfect score on an inspection is 100; however, the establishment is deducted points if it does not meet the department’s guidelines. Guidelines for these inspections are set forth by the Cabinet for Health Services.
The food safety regulations were established to protect public health. Issues relating to food safety include: personal hygiene of food service workers, proper cooking and holding temperatures, approved food sources and food storage.
