Nino’s on Lake Tiogue, Rhode Island, has been cleared to re-open after a Norovirus outbreak sickened several customers in March. Full Story
“The Office of Food Protection did go in and do a final inspection yesterday (Monday) morning before they are given the OK to open,” said Andrea Bagnall Degos, spokesperson for the Rhode Island Department of Health.
Nino’s closed voluntarily last week to undergo a “devirus” cleaning process as a precaution when the Rhode Island Health Department received reports of several people complaining of norovirus symptoms after attending parties at Nino’s on March 25.
“Though the health department was unable to determine the actual origin of the illnesses, we conducted a full and complete sanitization of the facility, beyond what was required,” Charles Cunha, owner of Nino’s, said in a statement.
