Effective July 1, all restaurants in Alameda County (with the exception of Berkley) now have
color-coded placards issued by the
Alameda County Health Department indicating the rating of the restaurant's cleanliness.
According to the website, the change will effect 6,000 restaurants in the county. The county will make routine inspections of the restaurants.
Look for the placards posted at the front of the eatery.
- Green means "pass"
- Yellow means "conditional pass"
- Red means the restaurant is closed.
