Too many at once or repeated violations. When it has been brought to your attention and you have been told to fix it, you had better fix it.

There are no set numbers. A place could have a dozen minor violations that never lead to closure.
One "whoop-di-doo" violation can close a place.

No set number. We have a few that have had 5 major violations; they're still operational after correcting the violations. A permanent shutdown might result from the death of a customer or two due to poor food handling procedures. It also happens when there are many serious violations over several years of inspections and non-compliance.
Usually, a temporary closure is the first corrective action to give time for the owners to clean up their act. Followup inspections will determine if they can stay open or not.

Depends on what the violation is. Dirty tables versus roaches and rats in the kitchen is a WIDE gap of offensives.

That is entirely a decision of your local Health Dept in your town.

It depends on the violation. A soft violation is basically a warning. A hard violation will generally get you a small amount of time to get it fixed. I think several hard violations that don't get fixed would get a place shut down, but permanent closure would probably involve the owner not being financially able to fix the violation or pay the fines.
