Restaurant Industry Sees Spike In Job Applications As Unemployment Benefits Come To An End

PROVIDENCE, RI (WLNE) – More than 250 businesses in sectors like retail, fitness, and hospitality received perfect scores on their COVID-19 compliance inspections.

The perfect scores were handed out by inspectors from the state’s COVID-19 Enforcement Task Force, according to Department of Health spokesman Joseph Wendelken.

The COVID-19 Enforcement Task Force is a joint effort between RIDOH and the Rhode Island Department of Business Regulation (DBR).

Wendelken says the inspections are intended to measure compliance with industry specific COVID-19 requirements and a full list of those inspections are online. 

Ten businesses received compliance orders last week for failing to comply with a range of public health directives related to COVID-19, Wendelken noted.

Three of those businesses which are listed below were re-inspected on Tuesday and were found to now be in compliance, RIDOH says.

The following businesses are now in compliance after originally failing their COVID-19 inspections: 

  • Mahogany Shoals, New Shoreham
  • Saver’s Mart, Providence
  • Sandy Shore Motel, Westerly
  • Milano’s Pizza, Providence

These compliance orders and all other COVID-19 related compliance orders are posted online on the website of DBR.
