Manassas Health Inspections: Minnieland Academy, Legacy Ridge

MANASSAS, VA — A pair of care facilities in the Manassas area recorded violations during recent health department inspections. Inspectors visited the facilities on Feb. 28 and March 1.

Many COVID-19 restrictions have relaxed around the state, and health inspectors are returning to conduct many restaurant and other health inspections in person. However, some visits, such as those for training purposes, can be conducted virtually.

Violations typically focus on factors that can contribute to food contamination. The local health department can also perform a re-inspection to ensure that possible violations have been corrected.

For every observed violation, the inspector provides a specific corrective action that can be completed to rectify the violation. Sometimes these are simple, and violations can be corrected during the course of the inspection. Other violations are addressed later, and an inspector may conduct a follow-up inspection to ensure compliance.

Here are the most recent inspections from the Manassas area, according to the Prince William Health District.
