SEATTLE (AP) — King County restaurants will begin displaying their food safety inspection ratings on window signs near the entrance of their businesses.

KIRO-TV reports that the county is in the process of implementing the rating system for restaurants based on inspections conducted by Public Health Seattle & King County. The inspections determine if a restaurant has met the minimum standards to operate.

The grade displayed on the window sign will represent how well a restaurant has met the minimum standard.

Public Health says the ratings are meant to help people make informed dining decisions and promote food safety.
