Effective July 1, all restaurants in Alameda County (with the exception of Berkley) will 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 affect 6,000 restaurants in the county. The county will make routine inspections of the restaurants.
Look for the placard posted at the front of the eatery.
- Green means "pass"
- Yellow means "conditional pass"
