While the Grayson County Health Department has had its hands full tracking cases of COVID-19 for the past several months, it has also continued to inspect local eateries for their compliance with food safety regulations. From the looks of the latest round of those inspections, local restaurants are keeping up with the regulations.

Only one of the dozens recently inspected made anything lower than an "A."

The Grayson County Health Department rates restaurants and other establishments that serve food 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.
