An employee of Marigold Catering in the Sprout Cafe at NASA Glenn Research Center in Cleveland, OH was diagnosed with Legionnaires’ disease earlier this week.
The full statement from the NASA Glenn Research Center said:
“An individual who works for Marigold Catering in the Sprout Cafe at NASA Glenn Research Center in Cleveland was diagnosed with Legionnaires’ disease. NASA Glenn management became aware of this individual’s condition late Tuesday afternoon, September 15.
As a precaution, the cafeteria was closed to allow a Glenn response team and a third party expert in Legionnaires’ disease assessments to conduct an environmental assessment and inspection for legionella, as recommended by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). The findings of these activities will determine our next step in the process.
The health and security of the Glenn workforce is the center management’s number one concern. We are monitoring the situation and will providing updates to the workforce as they become available.”
