Health inspectors from Wayne County visited restaurants throughout the county in July, checking to see how restaurants are operating. The inspections are intended to make sure food safety protocols are being followed, keeping diners safe.
Inspections that typically happen every month slowed down in recent months as dining rooms were ordered closed by the state to help stop the spread of the coronavirus, which has infected more than 115,000 statewide since first being found in Michigan in March. Dining rooms were allowed to reopen in early June.
Included here is a list of restaurants in several Hometown Life communities that inspectors found priority violations, which are the most serious violations that could lead to foodborne illness. Those communities are Northville, Northville Township, Plymouth, Plymouth Township, Canton Township, Westland, Wayne, Livonia, Garden City and Redford Township.
