Effective earlier this week, restaurants and eateries are now required to display their health inspection notices conspicuously. The system is different from the super easy to understand NYC based letter system, and the ranks are ‘excellent,’ ‘good,’ ‘fair,’ or ‘unsatisfactory’.
Before this, the ratings were only availble online at albanycounty.com/restaurantinspections, but since New York City has adopted this system, they have seen increased restaurant compliance with health inspectors.
Hit the jump for the press release, the grading rubric, and sample notices of compliance.
