If you want to check out health inspection results for schools, restaurants, lodging, campgrounds, pools, or body piercers, they're now available through a new state web portal.

The Maine CDC says the results are a snapshot of the day and time inspectors arrive unannounced to check for violations.

Establishments receive a failed inspection when there are three critical or 10 non-critical violations.

The portal is available on the Maine CDC's Health Inspection Program website.
