A new signage program involving local food establishments and inspection results is being launched by the North Bay Parry Sound District Health Unit.

It’s called ‘Check&Go!’ and is a colour coded signage program that starts June 3rd.

After a food establishment is inspected they will receive one of three signs (PASS, CONDITIONAL PASS or CLOSED).

The food establishment operator will be expected to post the sign at or near the main public entrance to the establishment, in a location clearly visible to members of the public.

Signage will only be posted at food premises in the Health Unit’s region that are inspected on or after June 3, 2019.

“The purpose of Check&Go! is to help individuals make informed decisions to protect their health and to share information about health inspection results,” said David Perrault, Senior Public Health Inspector. “When individuals see the sign at a local establishment they know the establishment has been inspected and what the results of the inspection are.”
