A study group is being former to study all aspects of nuclear war with a Nuclear Freeze petition as a Dr. Earl AUara, Physician- Director of the Jefferson County Health Department, announced that results had been received of an official Food Service Establishment Sanitation Evaluation con- ducted by Food Survey Of. ricers of the West Virginia State Health Department. Robert P. Wheeler, director, Office of Environmental Services, State Health Department, commended the Jefferson County En- vironmental Health staff for their conscientious efforts in upgrading the sanitation level of the food service establish- ments in Jefferson County. Fifty two of the 148 establishments operating in the County were randomly selected to be surveyed this year. The last survey was in November 1978 and 79 per cent of the establishments failed to meet minimum standards. During that time another sanitarian was hired by the Jefferson County Commission and Board of Health to permit more work to be done with places serving food. As a result 93 per cent of the establishments evaluated this year met the minimum standards. The of a survey of this type is three fold. It provided the local Board of Health an audit of the average sanitation level of the food service establishnmnts. The second purpose is to evaluate the administrative aspects of the Health Department food establish- ment inspection program. Thirdly, it identifies for the State Health Department the effectiveness of its training, resources, and technical assistance provided to local Health Departments. The average score of the establisiunents was 82 per cent. This indicates the sanitation level is acceptable. The administrative level of this program was 86 per cent and also an acceptable level. Dr. Allara stated he is very pleased with this report and gives credit to the County Commission for supplying additional money in 1979 to hire the staff needed to ac- complish a successful program. Although pleased with the progress so far, the Depart- ment realizes much work remains to be done. Dr. Allara wishes to express his gratitude for the cooperation that has been received from the food service industry. This can not only result in in- creased sales but provide better protection of the Public's Health.
