Toledo-Lucas County Health Department inspectors have cleared Mama C's Donuts to resume business following an outbreak of norovirus, though owners said it would be Sunday or Monday before the shop will open to customers.

The health department said it had been alerted to reports of several customers who had gotten sick after eating doughnuts from Mama C's between August 4 and August 7. They said they are working closely with the health department to clean and sanitize the entire restaurant before being re-inspected.

Health officials in neighboring Wood County also are investigating whether a dozen cases reported there are linked to stores that sell Mama C's doughnuts.

The health department tested "specimens" from the restaurant, Zgodinski said, according to WTOL-TV Channel 11, a CBS affiliate news station in Toledo.

The Toledo-Lucas County Health Department is expected to update the media on the outbreak on Friday.

The virus can cause inflammation in the stomach and intestines, causing stomach pain, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. The illness often begins suddenly, and the infected person may feel very sick.

According to Moore, the doughnut shop will remain closed until after the cleaning and after it is reinspected by the health department.

Calls to Mama C's Donuts and Coffee were not returned Thursday. In most people, the illness is self-limiting with symptoms lasting for about 1 or 2 days.

Norovirus generally spreads more rapidly this time of year and peaks in the winter. It affects people of all ages.[1] The virus is transmitted by fecally contaminated food or water, by person-to-person contact, [2] and via aerosolization of vomited virus and subsequent contamination of surfaces.[3] Annually, norovirus is associated with 906,000 outpatient visits in industrialized countries, with 64,200 inpatient hospitalizations. People typically become ill 24 to 48 hours after exposure to the virus, and symptoms usually last one to two days - and it is important to note that people can spread the virus for up to two weeks after their symptoms go away.
