Thursday’s count was 49.  Hass added that all 10 people who were hospitalized for the illness have been discharged.

"It’s still an ongoing investigation," Hass said today.  The Subway restaurant, at 1009 E. Roosevelt Road, is closed and a re-opening date has not been set, Hass said.  We filed our second lawsuit today.  Expect more next week.
