The Navarro County Public Health District is now offering food handler's courses.

Anthony McGee, Navarro County Public Health District Registered Sanitarian shut down four local vendors who were selling food items without a permit.

“It is illegal to operate a food establishment without a health permit,” McGee said. “To apply for a permit, call 903-874-6731.”

All establishments start with a score of 100. If violations are found, points are deducted. If more than 30 points are lost, the establishment must submit to a re-inspection and corrections must be made to bring the score above 70 as regulated by the Texas Food Establishment Rules. If future inspections score below 70, compliance actions will be taken.

The Navarro County Public Health District is now offering food handler's courses on the third Wednesday of the month in English and every other month in Spanish. Price is $10 per person. For more information call 903-874-6731. Classes are open to everyone.

To be eligible to pass inspection, pools must have the appropriate amount of chlorine and have a pH balance between 7.0 and 7.8. Pools must be marked for safety precautions, must have working and maintained water pump and have a phone location sign visible by the pool or spa yard with emergency numbers listed.
