Legionnaires' disease hits three NYCHA residents in harlem

'Cluster' of cases of Legionnaires' disease confirmed in Surrey

Most people sickened by the illness in Hampton are believed to have been infected while on Ashworth Avenue between Island Path and M Street, a tourist spot near the ocean, the state said.

The order to remediate the water system and notify current or future guests of the Legionella outbreak and test results was issued pursuant to RSA 141-C:11-16, which requires the Commissioner of DHHS to take actions necessary to protect public health.

The state announced the Legionnaires' Disease "cluster" last weekend with four initial cases.

DPHS and experts from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are working diligently to identify a potential source of the bacteria.

Fraser Health says most people in good health do not get the disease when exposed to the bacteria, but the elderly, smokers and people with chronic lung conditions or compromised immune systems are at higher risk.

Legionnaire's disease is acquired from breathing in small drops of water that contain the bacteria.

Legionnaires' disease symptoms are very similar to other types of pneumonia and can include a cough, shortness of breath, fever, muscle aches, and headaches.

Bagley said this particular bacterial infection can not be passed from person-to-person.

Lisa Morris, Director of the Division of Public Health Services said in a press release, "Even though the information is preliminary, we want to allow the public to make informed decisions about visiting the area and their activities in the area". Symptoms usually appear two to 10 days after significant exposure to Legionella bacteria. However, individuals who are at a higher risk of the disease should continue to take steps to protect their health, which includes postponing a visit to the area if they are concerned about their health. People are advised to observe the exposure for 2 weeks before taking other steps.
