Jimmy John's to Re-Open This Afternoon

Representatives of the Benton-Franklin Health District tell us that the department will allow the owners of Jimmy John's on Clearwater Avenue in Kennewick to re-open this afternoon.

The Health District closed the restaurant Thursday afternoon after several complaints that customers who ate there got sick with norovirus like symptoms, including vomiting and diarhea. 

The decision to re-open the restaurant was made following a two hour inspection Saturday morning, Health officials tell us the restaurant has been completely co-operative during the investigation.
