Foodborne illness outbreak investigation summary
Posted January 26, 2016
Public Health investigated an outbreak of norovirus-like illness associated with Maggiano's Little Italy restaurant in Bellevue. People from several unrelated private events at Maggiano's reported symptoms consistent with norovirus following meals that were consumed between January 18th and January 23rd. As many as 60 people may have been impacted by the outbreak, though not all were interviewed directly by Public Health. Several restaurant workers also reported being ill with symptoms consistent with norovirus dating back to January 9th and over the subsequent two weeks.
Public Health learned of the outbreak late on Friday, January 22nd. The restaurant worked cooperatively with Public Health; their food business permit was temporarily suspended to allow time for thorough cleaning and sanitizing and the restaurant was reopened on January 27th. No additional reports of illness have been received following the reopening.
