An employee of the Richmond Public Health Center in Richmond, California, died during the weekend of May 7-8, 2011 after contracting Legionnaires’ disease. This is the second incident since 2008 in which an employee of the Health Center has fallen ill with the disease. Another employee, who was first infected in 2008, spent several days in Intensive Care and remains on long-term medical leave. After her confirmed diagnosis, the Health Center investigated and found the legionella bacteria in the air conditioning tank on the roof of the building. Despite this fact, the director of Contra Costa County Health Services asserted in a press release on Wednesday, May 11, 2011 that the source of the 2008 case “was never confirmed” and that “the [Legionella] bacteria is frequently found in water whenever it is tested for.” He added that the precautions undertaken as a result of the 2008 case continue today, and that the Health Center now intends to repeat the investigative efforts employed three years ago, which include testing the air and water supplies of the building.
