(A)   At the conclusion of inspection,  the status of the food service establishment shall be determined and placed into one of the following categories:
      (1)   No follow-up required. No uncorrected priority or priority foundation items exist. Core violations may exist but the quantity does not warrant enforcement review. A limited number of repeat violations were observed during the inspection.
      (2)   Follow-up visit required. A follow-up visit shall be completed at a date noted on the report to verify the timely correction of outstanding priority or priority foundation violations.
      (3)   Enforcement action required. Violations observed during the routine inspection warrant further review or enforcement action by the regulatory authority. Enforcement action may include, but is not limited to,  a follow-up inspection,  a warning letter from the regulatory authority, a scheduled formal hearing, a completed long-term plan of action by the permit holder,  or the immediate suspension of food service operations.
      (4)   Closure. An imminent health hazard exists that poses a risk to patrons of the food service establishment.
   (B)   It is at the discretion of the regulatory authority to establish the severity of enforcement protocol based upon observations and violations noted during the routine inspection.
