BROOKLYN PARK, Minn. (AP) - A coffee shop in a Twin Cities suburb has been sanitized after at least seven employees apparently passed the norovirus to customers.

Members of the Champlain Park High School cheer squad got sick after visiting Caribou Coffee in Brooklyn Park last week. Allison Fortuna says more than a dozen friends that went to the coffee shop became ill. Fortuna tells KMSP-TV (https://bit.ly/1i39jaY ) that she and other members of the squad were sick with flu-like symptoms for three to four days.

Caribou spokeswoman Brianna Bauer says the store reopened Monday after professional cleaners spent the weekend sanitizing the shop. Brooklyn Park public health spokesman Jason Newby says the store voluntarily closed Friday after it was learned the seven employees were sick.
