More than 20 people have gotten sick because of salmonella.

And now, Nebraska’s Department of Health and Human Services says that number could get close to 30.

The department says everyone with a confirmed case ate at Red Door Coffee in West Point.

“For that reason, a survey of restaurant patrons was initiated to help determine possible causes and sources of the illness," said Gina Uhing, Health Director for Elkhorn Logan Valley Public Health Department.

Local health officials say Red Door Coffee owners and staff have been "extremely cooperative and helpful" throughout the process and are focused on resolving the issue.

Twenty-two people have been confirmed to have Salmonella infection.

Health officials say another six could be confirmed soon.

The health department doesn't know exactly what people ate yet but knows they all visited between July 14 and July 29.

They're looking for anyone else who ate there during that time.

Symptoms of bacteria include fever, diarrhea, and stomach cramps.

Anyone who ate at Red Door Coffee between July 14 and July 29 is asked to complete a brief survey that will help ELVPHD and DHHS in this process.

The survey can be found at https://han.ne.gov/survey/rdc or by visiting the ELVPHD website at www.elvphd.org.
