Officials say Ohio norovirus outbreak tied to doughnut shop


The Blade reports inspectors from the Toledo-Lucas County Health Department has given Mama C's Donuts in Maumee a clean bill of health after 325 people in Lucas County and 69 in neighboring Wood County reported becoming ill this week after consuming food from the shop.

"I was texted Sunday morning about 2 a.m. or so that there was something going on".

According to Moore, the doughnut shop will remain closed until after the cleaning and after it is reinspected by the health department. It is spread primarily through contact with infected individuals, or through contamination of food prepared by a person who is now ill or has been recently ill and didn't wash their hands appropriately.

Kelly Walkup, Maumee resident and mother of four, said she was shocked to hear about the outbreak. The patients showed up at clinics from August 4 to August 7.

Norovirus, which spreads easily through food and drink, inflames the stomach and intestines and often causes vomiting, diarrhea, and stomach cramps.

However, people who had the virus can spread it up to two weeks after the symptoms go away.

Norovirus is accompanied by typical stomach flu symptoms, usually lasting one or two days.

The health department says the virus is common at this time of the year and is important to emphasize 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 72 hours (three days) after their symptoms go away, and that anyone else experiencing symptoms consistent with norovirus should also refrain from handling food for others until 72 hours after their symptoms go away.

The Chao's are hoping that another inspection by the health department will allow them to reopen the restaurant soon.

A number of loyal customers said they plan to stick by Mama C's side despite the controversy.

"People are pretty quick to shame them, but it can happen anywhere". I think it's super unfortunate. 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. 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.
