Information for the restaurant reports comes from the Trigg County Health Department or the Pennyrile District Health Department. A minimum score of 85 with no critical violations is considered passing.

Restaurants can increase their scores by correcting critical violations while the inspector is present. Inspectors will conduct a follow-up inspection if the score is less than 85 or if there is a critical violation.
