According to the Ongar Gazette, the Ongar Sports and Social Club has shut down its showers after they were found to contain a “high risk” of legionella.
A contractor has been hired to disinfect the showers this week, and the club may also purchase new water tanks at an estimated cost of £12,000. The rest of the club is still open, and there is no indication that the water outside the shower system contains any traces of legionella bacteria. The showers are expected to reopen this weekend.
