At least 250 people have fallen ill after a norovirus outbreak in Toledo area, Ohio. "The best way to stop norovirus is proper hand washing, cleaning surfaces, and staying home when sick", was the only info provided along the graphic and posted on Facebook by the Toledo-Lucas County Health Department.

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.

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.

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

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