  • Food Establishment Closures

    When and why we close

    A food establishment must close when we find an issue that is a significant public health danger. If they can’t immediately fix the issue, they must close to prevent illness or injury.

    Most establishments quickly reopen after they fix the problem. Closure for repeated violations is rare.

    Reasons for closure

    • Fire.
    • Flood.
    • Extended lack of power or water.
    • Sewage backup.
    • Misuse of dangerous chemicals.
    • Apparent foodborne illness outbreak.
    • Very unsanitary condition.
    • Lack of refrigeration.
    • Repeated high score (100 or more red points) on a routine inspection.
    • Repeated critical violation.
    • No operating permit.
    • Owner/manager interferes with inspector doing their job.

    You can sign up to get emails when food establishments close or reopen.
