There were no failures in Hamilton County. However, one restaurant in North Georgia just barely passed inspection.

Elote La Palma in Dalton scored a 71. 

Inspectors say two employees entered the building without washing their hands prior to touching “single-service” items.  Other violations included employees were not wearing hair restraints. The water was not turned on while the business was open. Hot & cold water must always be on when in operation. An employee was also spotted touching ready-to-eat corn with their bare hands.

Another low score in North Georgia went to the pool at the Key West Inn in Lafayette. The Key West pool scored at 78. Inspectors say the chlorine level was too high and handrails were wobbly.

The motel is required to make the necessary changes before opening the pool.

Remember if you have a complaint about a restaurant, pool or even the place where you work out, call your local health department.
