Wigan hygiene ratings - latest results
Health officials managed to squeeze in several final hygiene inspections across the borough before the nation went into lockdown.
Inspectors from the Food Standards Agency have halted their visits to food-serving businesses during the pandemic, but some still took place before restaurants, pubs and cafes were ordered to close, ahead of the full lockdown.
And among the businesses inspected in early March, some such as takeaways remain open for business.
But less than a fifth were able to earn top marks. Just six out of the 34 venues inspected were given the highest score of Five (around 17 per cent), though nine places achieved the second highest mark of Four.
There were 8 businesses deemed clean enough for a mark of Three, which indicates that hygiene is “generally satisfactory” and one businesses earned a Two.
10 eateries were ranked at One, the second lowest score, but no Zeros were dished
Businesses that serve food are rated on how hygienically it is handled; how it is prepared, cooked, reheated, cooled and stored; the condition of the structure of the buildings; the cleanliness, lay-out, lighting, ventilation and other facilities, as well as how the business manages and records what it does to make sure food is safe.
