PIKEVILLE, Ky. — The Pike County Health Department released its latest round of restaurant inspections conducted during December, with seven establishments earning perfect scores and and 16 others requiring follow-ups.

Asterisks appear before names of establishments above if corrections are not made and will require another follow-up.
The health department normally inspects restaurants and other eateries twice a year, checking food storage, preparations, personnel, restrooms, water and other health conditions.
A perfect inspection score is 100 percent, points are subtracted if violations are found. The score thresholds are:
• 85 to 100 percent indicates compliance with health department guidelines;
• 70 to 84 percent means the establishment must be reinspected within 30 days. If problems have not been corrected, it faces possible closure;
• 60 to 69 percent means the establishment will have five days to request a hearing to show why it should be allowed to continue to operate;
• 59 percent of less means an automatic and immediate closing if conditions pose an immediate health risk to the public.
Certain conditions and practices are considered potentially serious threats to the public’s health and require a correction within 10 days. Asterisks denote such deficiencies before the score:
