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.

Officials began investigating this week after a spate of people developed the gastrointestinal illness.

Mama C's voluntarily closed on Tuesday for cleaning and has yet to reopen.

The outbreak began late last week and all the cases that developed symptoms of the gastrointestinal virus had eaten food from the shop between August 4 and Tuesday, according to health officials.

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.

The genus name Norovirus is derived from Norwalk virus, the only species of the genus.
