Excellent recommendation for citizens to protect themselves with this report which is generated ultimately by taxpayers money.

Any other taxpayer generated reports which the public should have access to which can be put forth by whomever?

Thank You for producing this reports for public viewing!!!

Again, does the app have a name? Nothing comes up under cchs or contra costa health services.

Yes! Thank you very much for producing this report!!!!

@Jessica, any news on the name of the app described in your article? It seems a bit odd to describe it as a way to easily access inspection results when there is no way to access the app!

Thanks!

Nice app but don't expect much. A few years ago in Redwood City a Mexican restaurant was held responsible for the sickness of many customers and the death of a woman. They were shut down, put through a "training" and allowed to re-open!!
Wash your hands101 was enough.
