Quincy, IL (WGEM)-- The Adams County Health Department says they've had several reports of someone impersonating health inspectors at local restaurants.
Officials say they don't know why the person did it or if it will happen again. But in the past, usually the reason has been someone trying to make money. Jerrod Welch, the Adams County public health administrator, says there are some things every inspector should have.
"They should have an Adams County Health Department identification card, they should also be in a logo health department shirt. If they have those two things on they're going to be a legitimate health department employee," says Welch.
If you suspect something is wrong, call the health department. They can verify if the inspector is certified.
