Crunch Fitness Legionnaires’ Disease Outbreak

A Legionnaires’ Disease outbreak at a Crunch Fitness in Boise, Idaho includes at least three people. Health officials have zeroed in on a hot tub/spa area at the gym located at 2999 N Lakeharbor Lane, as the potential outbreak source.

Legionnaires’ disease is a severe form of pneumonia people get when they inhale water vapor that is contaminated with Legionella bacteria. Symptoms including fever, headache, cough, muscle aches, and shortness of breath usually develop within two to 14 days of exposure. Most people with Legionnaires’ disease require hospitalization, and about 10 percent of cases are fatal.

Legionella bacteria are found in nature but grow best in the warm water of manmade structures. With water temperatures ranging between 96˚F – 104˚F, hot tubs are frequently identified as the source of outbreaks. At temperatures above 78˚F, chlorine begins to break down. So, proper maintenance and regular testing are crucial.
