People get Legionnaires’ when they inhale water vapor that is contaminated with Legionella bacteria. It is not transmitted from person to person.

Outbreaks are frequently linked to water in manmade structures such as pools, hot tubs, fountains, and commercial plumbing systems. Upon instruction from the Ft. Bend County Health & Human Services, Bonterra management closed the pool in the clubhouse in the late evening of June 28 after more than 100 people had gathered there for Bingo night, the company told KHOU. The next morning Bonterra close the entire clubhouse.

Some people are at greater risk of contracting Legionnaires’ disease than others. They include:

  • People over 55
  • Current and former smokers
  • People with underlying medical conditions

Symptoms of an infection include 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. About 10 percent of cases are fatal.
