The Cowfish restaurant in the Southpark Charlotte Mecklenburg County, North Carolina area has voluntarily closed for the rest of the week after two additional patrons and an employee developed stomach flu symptoms.
Cowfish management has been proactive and in constant contact with the Health Department since multiple customers and employees became sick last week. The restaurant was closed, cleaned and then reopened until today, when the restaurant received reports of new cases.
Health inspectors continue investigating the cause of the illness. While the reported symptoms resemble those caused by the Norovirus, there are no confirmed cases at this time.
