Work to keep track of the spread of the COVID-19 virus in Grayson County has kept local sanitarians busy over the past few months. Their work on the pandemic has been such that recent inspections of local eateries has slowed down.

In the past two weeks, sanitarians inspected nine establishments and the all received "A" grades.

Over the last several months, most local restaurants were closed to seated dining handling take out or curb side only orders.

The Grayson County Health Department scores local eateries based on their adherence to codes set by the Texas Department of Health. Restaurants are given an “A,” “B,” “C” or “F” score. An “A” means sanitarians reported no or only a few minor violations. Those with a “B” were found to have several minor violations, but nothing major. Restaurants with a “C” might have a major violation or repeat offenses, but in the inspectors’ opinions, nothing bad enough to warrant an “F.”

An “A” means sanitarians reported 10 or fewer demerits. Those with a “B” received 11-20 demerits. Restaurants with a “C” had 21-30 demerits and restaurants with “F” ratings received more than 30 demerits.
