Donut Shop Responsible For Infecting 300 With Norovirus

Do-nut touch that doughnut! More than 200 people sickened by norovirus tied to local pastry shop

A spokesman for the Wood County Health District, said officials think a dozen norovirus cases there are connected to Mama C's products provided to businesses in Wood County. "No one got sick, so we were pretty surprised", Walkup said.

County health officials say more than 200 cases of norovirus have been linked to a doughnut shop in northwest Ohio. She said, "We feel sorry about it". The patients showed up at clinics from August 4 to August 7.

The restaurant voluntarily closed for cleaning on August 8.

Symptoms of Norovirus include diarrhea, vomiting, abdominal pain, headaches, body aches and a mild fever. We will reopen when everything is back to normal and the health department does an inspection.

According to health officials, norovirus is common at this time of the year and that food workers (restaurants/resorts/festival booths) experiencing the above mentioned symptoms, should refrain from working (preparing and handling food/drinks/ice) for at least three days after their symptoms go away. The illness often begins suddenly, and the infected person may feel very sick. "The health department has been in contact with the professional cleaning company that Mama C's is using to ensure the food establishment is properly cleaned", the statement says.

The couple, who have owned the beloved local business for 14 years, told the station that their customers are "apart of their family".

Norovirus, sometimes referred to as the winter vomiting bug in the United Kingdom and Ireland, is the most common cause of viral gastroenteritis in humans.

The health department will reportedly inspect the joint once the cleaning is done and the joint can only resume operations if the officials give them a green signal to go ahead with it.

Kelly Walkup, a Maumee resident, said she was shocked at the news, according to CBS.

'I clean, but my goodness, my house could be carrying a virus for all I know with the people coming in and out, touching things'. However, it can lead to severe dehydration and serious, sometimes life-threatening illnesses in the elderly or people with suppressed immune systems, according to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
