More Than 12 Sick with Legionnaires’ at Baldwin County, AL Condo

The Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH) is investigating a Legionnaires’ disease outbreak that includes more than 12 people who live at a condominium complex in Baldwin County, AL. The ADPH has chosen not to release the name of the complex where the illnesses have occurred over the last several months.

Legionnaires’ disease is not spread from person to person. People get Legionnaires’ disease, a severe form of pneumonia, when they breathe in water vapor that is contaminated with Legionella bacteria. Legionella thrives in the plumbing systems of commercial buildings, hot tubs, fountains, and spas.

Systems of an infection include cough, fever, headache, and muscle aches. People who live or work in this condominium complex and develop these symptoms should see a doctor and mention exposure to Legionella.

The building owners are in the process of notifying people who live and work at the property and have proposed a plan to mitigate the contamination, according to the ADPH.

Legionella bacteria is tested to determine source of pneumonia.
