Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH) has closed a Richmond restaurant due to health safety reasons until further notice.
In a photo taken by a Richmond community member, a closure order was posted on the door of Sea Fortune Restaurant, at Granville Avenue and St. Albans Road, by VCH on Thursday, Oct. 6.
Pests and unsanitary conditions were key issues that resulted in the restaurant temporarily being closed, according to VCH's inspection paper.
In the closure order, Sea Fortune is to be closed until the health authority has "provided authorization to re-open" when the restaurant has completed all the appropriate actions listed.
"All pest service reports from previous months to all upcoming daily services prior to re-opening must be submitted to undersign prior to reopening inspection," reads the closure order.
The restaurant will need to meet with the local health authority to explain future plans to maintain compliance with the Food Premises Regulation, clean and sanitize the business' food contact surfaces, equipment, storage areas, floors, walls ceiling and "all areas that are contaminated by rodent activity."
