Public health inspectors issued a closure order at a Markham restaurant and handed out tickets for violations under the province’s Health Protection and Promotion Act at five other York Region food service providers.

• Golden Palace Banquet Hall, 3225 Hwy. 7, Markham, received a closure order Aug. 9 for failing to provide adequate protection against the entrance of insects, vermin, or rodents.

Other compliance issues cited were:

failing to ensure at least one certified food handler is present at all times during operation of a high-risk food premise;

• failing to ensure a minimum of one operator holds a food handler's certificate at a high-risk food premise;

• operating a food premise maintained in a manner permitting a health hazard;

• failing to maintain the premise in a clean and sanitary condition; and

• failing to ensure a room was kept free from materials/equipment not regularly used.

Golden Palace was also charged with operating a food premise maintained in a manner permitting a health hazard.

The restaurant was re-inspected Aug. 11 and a proof of public health inspection sign was posted.

Health inspectors issued tickets at five other establishments.

• Richmond Hill Variety Store, 10255 Yonge St., was charged Aug. 9 with failing to equip a facility with hot and cold water.

• Phoenix Noodle House, 4350 Steeles Ave., Markham, was charged Aug. 9 with failing to ensure the floor of a food-handling room was kept clean.

• Keung's Restaurant, 8380 Kennedy Rd., Markham, was charged Aug. 8 with failing to ensure the ceiling of a food-handling room was kept in good repair.
