Food Poisoning Journal

The Loudoun County Health Department (LCHD) continues to investigate the reports of illness at a Chipotle restaurant in Sterling and has identified approximately 60 ill individuals who reported being at the establishment last week. “One ill patron has tested positive for norovirus,” said Dr. David Goodfriend, director of the LCHD. “This provides additional information but is not sufficient to determine the cause of the outbreak. The Health Department is awaiting further test results, which should be available early next week.”

Customers who ate at the restaurant and became ill are encouraged to contact the Health Department at 703-771-5411. Additional questions or concerns can be addressed by contacting the Health Department at health@loudoun.gov.
