(A) The Health Authority shall establish a specific and reasonable time for the correction of observed violations. The permit holder shall correct the violations within the period specified in accordance with the following provisions:
(1) Core violations. Must be corrected in a time frame agreed upon by the Health Authority but no later than the next routine inspection.
(2) Priority foundation violations. Must be corrected immediately, within five business days of inspection, or other specified time frame designated by the Health Authority.
(3) Priority violations. Must be corrected immediately, within 48 hours, or other specified time frame designated by the Health Authority.
(B) A food establishment may be required under the provisions of this chapter to cease all or a portion of its operations. A food establishment shall not resume operations until such time as the Health Authority grants authorization to resume operations.
(C) Approval of a compliance schedule that extends beyond the time limits specified under this section may be approved by the Health Authority so long as no imminent public health hazard exists or may result from the extension of the compliance schedule.
(D) For any follow-up inspections due to priority violations, a fee set forth by the Macon County Board of Health will be assessed.
(E) Failure to comply with any time limits for correction will require the permit holder to immediately cease operations at the food service establishment. Whenever a permit holder is required under the provisions of this section to cease operations, the permit holder shall not resume operations until such time that a follow-up inspection has been made and the Health Authority confirms that the conditions responsible for the cessation of operations no longer exist. Receipts indicating work completed as well as pictures or videos showing correction may be used as documentation of correction. Provisions from § 91.25 must be followed to request a follow-up inspection.
(F) If an imminent health hazard exists, the food establishment shall immediately cease food preparation operations until such hazard is corrected and the Health Authority grants authorization to resume operations.
