Division of Hotels and Restaurants
An emergency closure is not a disciplinary action, but rather an action taken to mitigate conditions that pose an elevated risk to the health, safety or welfare of the public or the establishment's employees. The licensee is closed until the conditions are corrected. Examples of conditions warranting immediate closure include: lack of approved utilities or hot water, sewage backups or overflows, fire damage, pest infestation or inadequate refrigeration.
Please note that inspectors with the Division of Hotels and Restaurants’ titles are ‘Sanitation and Safety Inspectors.’
