Legionnaires’ Disease at Woodland Garden Apartments in Duluth

Two residents of Woodland Garden Apartments in Duluth, Minnesota have been diagnosed with Legionnaires’ disease, according to the Minnesota Department of Health. Woodland Garden is a seniors-only apartment building and seniors are among those who are at elevated risk of contracting Legionnaires disease, a severe, often fatal form of pneumonia.

Legionnaires’ disease is not contagious but is spread instead when water droplets contaminated with Legionella bacteria are inhaled. In addition to seniors, others at elevated risk are current and former smokers and people with underlying medical conditions.

Symptoms of an infection include cough, headache, fever, and muscle aches. Common sources of outbreaks include fountains, hot tubs, and the plumbing systems of commercial buildings.

Both cases at Woodland Garden were laboratory-confirmed with onsets in October 2022 and December 2022
