Mama C's Donuts sickens 266 with Norovirus

Mama C's Donuts sickens 266 with Norovirus”

Health officials came to the conclusion that all of those infected people were linked to each other: they ate at the same doughnut store on Conant Street, called Mama C's Donuts & Coffee. "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.

Health department officials became aware of the norovirus outbreak when local hospitals notified them about a number of people who became ill after eating Mama C's food from August 4 through August 7.

County officials are also investigating whether a dozen of the cases are tied to doughnuts the store provided to nearby businesses.

A spokesperson from the health department says the restaurant has been very cooperative and voluntarily closed on Tuesday to deep clean the kitchen and sanitize the entire facility. It isn't expected to reopen Thursday. He said he remained mystified as to what caused the norovirus outbreak, so he and his family would simply continue to do the best they could to keep their business safe and sanitary.

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. "Monday morning, we came in and started the investigation and found out that, at this point in time, the investigation is looking to Mama C's out in Maumee relative to a norovirus outbreak", Zgodinski told WTOL-TV. She said, "We feel sorry about it. No one got sick, so we were pretty surprised", Walkup said. These symptoms typically last one to three days.

Owners of the restaurant, Dar and Yann Chao, said they are working with the health department to determine the cause of the outbreak.

Kelly Walkup, a Maumee resident, said she was shocked at the news, according to CBS. "Right now, we are in the process of deep cleaning". We will reopen when everything is back to normal and the health department does an inspection. We feel so, so sorry for everything that happened. Thank you so much to all of our valued customers.

Although people commonly refer to norovirus illness as "stomach flu", the illness is not the same as influenza. Health Commissioner Eric Zgodzinski said, "the issue comes back to when the product stopped being sold and consumed".

Other symptoms of the norovirus are nausea, abdominal pain or camps, watery or loose diarrhea, malaise, low-grade fever, and muscle pain.
