What Is Legionnaires’ Disease?

 

  • Legionella is a bacterium (bacteria) that can cause severe pneumonia, which is called Legionnaire’s Disease.
  • The symptoms of Legionnaires’ disease are similar to a severe flu and can include: fever, headache, shortness of breath, muscle aches and pains, dry cough, and pneumonia.
  • From time of exposure it takes between 2 to 14 days for symptoms to appear.

Where Are the Most Common Places to Get Legionnaires’ Disease?

 

  • Legionella bacteria thrive in warm water and warm damp places.
  • It can be found in improperly maintained showers, hot tubs, hotel pools, spas, fountains, cruise ships, air conditioning units, building water systems and cooling towers.
