The store has eben shut down since Tuesday as workers clean it up, and it could be a while before it reopens.

Past year in OH, there were 76 norovirus outbreaks which sickened at least 3,031 people, according to the state health department. All had similar symptoms and had eaten food from the shop between August 4 and Tuesday, health department officials said. The health department investigated the possible source of the virus.

The health officials tested individuals from the restaurant according to WTOL-TV Channel 11, a CBS affiliate news station in the city. Three of the samples were positive for norovirus, WTOL reported.

Toledo-Lucas County Health Department officials said the cases are all linked to food eaten at the restaurant between Friday and Monday. While most people recover after just a few days of illness, it can be fatal for the very young or very old, or those with compromised immune systems.
