Red violations are those most likely to cause food-borne illness and must be corrected immediately if feasible or according to a compliance schedule established by the health officer. Blue violations relate to the overall cleanliness and condition of operation and must be corrected according to a compliance schedule established by the health officer. Any establishment receiving more than 45 red demerit points or more than 65 total demerit points will be automatically reinspected in 10 days.
