    Of those tested, six of the 10 specimens were positive for norovirus. Of those who tested positive, one person was an employee, one was a household member, and four were consumers of Dunkin’ Donuts.

    The health department followed up on 51 cases. Officials cannot confirm if the illness was caused by the sewage backup found in the store. However, they say it is not uncommon for norovirus to be present in sewage.

    That Dunkin’ Donuts location is fully operational.
