Outbreak News Today Legionella_Plate_01

Three people have been diagnosed with Legionnaires’ disease and one person has died following stays at the Christmas Mountain Resort in Wisconsin Dell. At this time, the local health authorities are investigating the outbreak.

As the investigation unfolds, a representative for the resort told the local media that some of their accommodations did indeed have Legionella present. “After testing, we found that the water supply in certain units had been affected and, subsequently, tested positive for the bacteria,” the spokeswoman said. The resort claims to be telling prospective guests about the disease, but thus far denies that the confirmed illnesses occurred on their property – despite the fact that all of those who are ill stayed at the resort within 2 weeks of their illnesses.
