A Coquitlam Chinese restaurant is allowed to open today (March 22) after it cleaned up the premises and dealt with rodent issues.
Hon's was given the green light to re-open after a Fraser Health inspector spent 90 minutes on the Sunwood Square property today (310-3025 Lougheed Hwy.).
It found that all "noted issues are addressed, rodent issue is being addressed, pest control assessment is received, weekly pest control service is in place," according to the inspection report.
The restaurant will have to maintain a level of cleanliness, and provide a report on efforts to deal with rodent issues, including putting out more traps.
The report said the operator must also Increase daily cleaning and sanitation, remove garbage or foods before closing and properly cover and store foods.
Hon's was shut last Wednesday (March 15) after a routine inspection found unsanitary conditions and evidence of mice and rats.
Fraser Health routinely checks restaurants in the region to ensure health and safety standards are followed and posts the results online.
Meanwhile, a second Coquitlam restaurant ordered closed has also been allowed re-open.
Fraser Health closed Nagano Japanese Restaurant at 2918 Glen Dr. on March 9, but allowed it to re-open March 16 after the operator dealt with pest control issues, food storage and cleaned the premises, according to the inspection report.
