Mama C's Donuts Link in Ohio Norovirus Outbreak

Mama C's Donuts Link in Ohio Norovirus Outbreak

With the number of victims nearing 250, public health officials in the Toledo area say they expect more illnesses to be reported in a norovirus outbreak linked to a suburban doughnut shop.

Health care providers in OH are not required to report individual cases of norovirus to public health agencies, but are required to report outbreaks of two or more cases. Mr. Zgodzinski said he doesn't know of any identified secondary cases, but the health department continues to monitor the situation.

Symptoms of a norovirus infection can include vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, headache, body aches, and sometimes a mild fever.

The restaurant remains closed for deep cleaning on Wednesday.

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

'We all missed work and feel like death!

Nearly 200 people were sickened by a Norovirus outbreak that was traced back to a local restaurant, and that number continues to climb.

Calls to Mama C's Donuts and Coffee were not returned Thursday.

The health department said people typically become sick 24 to 48 hours after exposure to the virus, with symptoms lasting one to two days. The virus itself, however, can remain contagious for up to two weeks. The illness often begins suddenly, and the infected person may feel very sick.

Mama C's donuts closed down on Tuesday to undergo a deep cleaning, complete with a special disinfectant used specifically to treat Norovirus.

Before Mama C's can resume operations, the health department must sign off regarding cleaning and other conditions.

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.

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

"People are pretty quick to shame them, but it can happen anywhere". I think it's super unfortunate. We are definitely going to give them a second chance'.

A norovirus outbreak tied to a local OH doughnut shop has sickened more than 200 people, including 15 young children at an eight-year-old's birthday party. He says this incident is an unfortunate reminder that it is the beginning of virus season, and to always do not forget to wash your hands and clean hard surfaces.
