Christian County Health Department Announces New Restaurant Permits

The Christian County Health Department is rolling out a new way of permitting restaurants for food safety in Christian County. Dr. Chad Anderson, Public Health Administrator, and Joe Torres, Director of Environmental Health, call this “gold Standard” food permit program a win-win-win. Businesses will be incentivized with lower costs associated with fewer visits from the health department upon passing tests, area consumers will know which restaurants are passing with flying colors, and the health department professionals will be spending less time at each restaurant.

Torres says restaurants that have had an average of fewer than three violations over the previous year will receive gold permit status.


Dr. Chad Anderson describes how this new implementation will save money for restaurants that stay in good standing with the Christian County Health Department.


A diamond-tier permit will be administered to businesses that have passed inspections for three consecutive years.

To find out more about the gold standard permits from the Christian County Health Department call them at 217-824-4113.

Dr. Chad Anderson and Joe Torres appeared as guests on the WTIM Morning Show.
