County health officials say five businesses were closed Wednesday for operating without a permit.

The Douglas County Health Department declined to identify which businesses were shut down, but said a retail food supervisor was accompanied by an Omaha Police officer to issue the citation and close the facility.

“Closings are being prioritized based upon the number of times the facility has operated without a permit in prior years,” the Health Department said in a statement Wednesday.

The action comes after officials released a list of 165 “delinquent” businesses on Monday.  Since then, business owners who have taken care of the paperwork and fees have been removed.

An updated list at noon on Wednesday showed 47 businesses remaining:
