CHEYENNE, Wyo. — The Cheyenne-Laramie County Health Department inspects restaurants, bars, convenient stores, delis, grocery stores, bed and breakfasts and more. Every facility has an unannounced inspection at least twice a year.

According to the department, there are two types of violations: red critical violations” and “black violations.” Critical violation are violations that are most likely to cause a foodborne illness and make someone sick. Non-critical violations, meanwhile, might be something more along the lines of cleanliness or upkeep of the facility.

According to Roy Kroeger, the Environmental Health Director at the health department, “We try to have the establishment correct any violations on the spot. Critical violations are either corrected immediately or within 24 hours.” He says that for noncritical violations, they still have to fix it, but a follow-up might not happen until their next routine inspection.

If a re-inspection is required, the issue might have been more severe or the facility required more time to fix it. They have ten days to fix the issue.

While the department is looking for deficiencies, the organization’s main goal is to educate businesses, helping them understand unsafe practices and ways to correct them. This means that not having a violation does not necessarily mean that the business is unsafe. 

Any serious violations or notable quotes will be included in the summary notes below, but the full report for each restaurant can be found at the Health Department’s website, where they publish all of their current information.
