NEW GOLDEN DRAGON CLOSED BY HEALTH

April 2, 2001 — The New Golden Dragon restaurant on Kronprindsens Gade was ordered closed for health-code violations Saturday by the Health Department's Environmental Health Division, according to a Government House statement on Monday.
The divis's director, Ethlyn Joseph, cited roach infestation, mouse droppings, excessive grease, food not protected from cross-contamination, and conditions prohibiting basic requirements for adequate sanitation.
The restaurant is slated for re-inspection Friday.
The Health Department has stepped up its inspection of restaurants in recent months and has closed several until they meet health-code standards.
