Lansing Applebees Reopens After Health Scare

A Michigan restaurant is back open for business after more than two dozen people who ate there got sick.

The Applebee's in Lansing was shut down for two days this week and thoroughly cleaned.

Health officials say 19 employees and 13 customers contracted a Norovirus, the leading cause of food illness.

Symptoms include vomiting, nausea and diarrhea.

The virus is spread by person to person, or person to food contact.

It can also be detected sometimes on tabletop surfaces.

Health officials do not know what caused the Norovirus outbreak, but say it is now completely safe to eat at the restaurant.
