2 Westport eateries fail November health inspections
WESTPORT — Two Westport eateries failed November health inspections, with one failing its follow-up re-inspection.
Establishments can fail health inspections two ways: Either by obtaining a score under 80 out of 100, or by receiving just one four-point deduction. Subsequent re-inspections are typically carried out two weeks after the initial inspection was completed.
