The director may bring an action to enjoin the violation or threatened violation of Section 1596.80 or 1596.805 in the superior court in and for the county in which the violation occurred or is about to occur. Any proceeding under this section shall conform to the requirements of Chapter 3 (commencing with Section 525) of Title 7 of Part 2 of the Code of Civil Procedure, except that the director shall not be required to allege facts necessary to show or tending to show lack of adequate remedy at law or irreparable damage or loss. Upon a finding by the director that the violation threatens the health or safety of any child in, or served by, a child day care facility, the department or agency contracted with may bring an action to enjoin the violation, threatened violation, or continued violation by any child day care facility which is located in an area for which it is responsible pursuant to the terms of the contract.

With respect to any and all actions brought pursuant to this section alleging actual violation of Section 1596.80 or 1596.805, the court shall, if it finds such allegations to be true, issue its order enjoining the child day care facility from continuance of the violation.

This section applies to family day care homes when the provider has failed to comply with Section 1596.80 or 1596.805 within 30 days of notice by the director of noncompliance, or at any time when a threat to the health and safety of children exists.
