The Evanston Health and Human Services Department (EHHS) alongside Northwestern University, is investigating a norovirus outbreak connected to the popular taco outlet, Big Wig Tacos located at 950 Church St, Evanston, IL. To date, several cases of severe gastrointestinal symptoms following consumption from the establishment have been... See More reported.

Further investigation revealed that the outbreak was associated with a specific event, "$1 Burrito for Northwestern Students", hosted at Big Wig Tacos & Burritos on Church St, Evanston on November 18, 2023, between 1 p.m. and 8 p.m. Affected individuals reported stomach discomfort, vomiting, and diarrhea within 12 to 48 hours after consumption from the taco joint. In the light of these reports, EHHS, on Nov. 19, conducted an inspection of the establishment where they confirmed the existence of an employee health policy and cleaning procedures.

Upon discovery of the outbreak, the EHHS started a comprehensive probe jointly with Northwestern University. As part of the investigation, an online questionnaire has been circulated to collect additional data regarding this incident. All patrons, regardless of whether they experienced any symptoms, who attended the discount event are encouraged to fill out this form.

Norovirus, commonly confused with the 'stomach flu' or influenza, is a highly contagious virus that leads to severe gastroenteritis, with symptoms like diarrhea, vomiting, nausea, and stomach pain, appearing within 12 to 48 hours of exposure. It spreads through direct contact with an infected person, contaminated food, water, and surfaces. To prevent further spread of this outbreak and protect yourself from norovirus, frequent handwashing with soap and water is recommended. Similarly, afflicted individuals should abstain from preparing food for others or working in a daycare center, healthcare facility, or food service establishment.

In case you experience Norovirus symptoms, report it now. It can help to detect & resolve outbreaks early and prevent others from being harmed, and it enables better surveillance. If symptoms persist, seek medical care
