From Wazeopedia

Whatever the reason, Waze users should not be routed without warning to places that are not open for normal business. However, because Waze includes third-party results in searches for places, without a linked Waze place, users may end up navigating to a third-party result with no way of knowing that the place is not open or does not even exist. Therefore, after confirming that a place is not open for business due to any of the above reasons, the following procedures should be used:

Process Steps Permanently Closed Temporarily Closed Under Construction
1 Search in the Waze app for the name and location of the place.
2 WME search returns: only a Waze place: delete the place and stop. continue to the next step.
third-party place(s): create Waze place (if not already present) and continue to the next step.
3 Add at the end of the name: (Permanently Closed) (Closed until [date]) (Opens [date])
4 Add a note in the description: Reported closed [date] Reported closed [date], reopens [date] Opens [date]
5 Ensure the applicable third-party place(s) linked to the Waze place.
6 Change the open hours to one min/week at a time least likely to be viewed, such as 3:00-3:01 Monday morning.
7 Submit third-party change. Submit a correction, if possible, to the third-party source to show that the place is closed. Submit a correction, if possible, to the third-party source and wait until reopening. Wait until opening.
8 Final cleanup. Delete the Waze place after the third-party place no longer appears in search results. Change the place back to normal after reopening. Change the place to normal after opening.
