    LEGIONNAIRES' DISEASE CAN AFFECT

    RETIREMENT COMMUNITIES

    There have been recent newspaper articles in the United States reporting outbreaks of Legionnaires' disease in retirement communities.  Legionnaires' disease is not contagious but is contracted when people breathe in tiny droplets of contaminated water from sources such as showers, water fountains, whirlpool tubs, etc.   The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have many resources available on this topic for you to review relating to symptoms, causes, prevention and surveillance.  For additional information, please reference CDC.gov.  http://www.cdc.gov/legionella/about/
