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.

Owners of the Mama C's Donuts and Coffee temporarily closed the doughnut shop after being notified of the outbreak.

The Health Commissioner added that the owner of the joint voluntarily closed the shop on Tuesday after health officials notified them of the illness among the customers, according to reports.

At least 250 people have fallen ill after a norovirus outbreak in Toledo area, Ohio. The illnesses have been tracked to people who ate at the shop between Friday and Monday.

"Mama C's is being extremely cooperative", the health department said.

More than 400 norovirus cases have been reported in OH and the outbreak is being linked to Mama C's Donuts in Maumee, according to a Toledo Blade report.

"I was texted Sunday morning about 2 a.m. or so that there was something going on". Norovirus can be fatal to some people, especially children, the elderly and those with compromised immune system.

13abc spoke an employee who answered the phone at Mama C's Wednesday morning. The department only posted an image on Thursday on its Facebook to protect people from the norovirus.

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

The virus can cause inflammation in the stomach and intestines, causing stomach pain, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. A person usually develops symptoms of gastroenteritis 12 to 48 hours after being exposed to norovirus.[5] General lethargy, weakness, muscle aches, headaches, and low-grade fevers may occur.

The health department spokesperson tells 13abc she hopes to have more information in the coming days.

But an infected individual can spread the virus up to two weeks after the symptoms disappear, unknowingly passing the virus through close contact like shaking hands. It can pass on through direct contact, like shaking hands, kisses, shared drinks, or just a normal-distance conversation.
