In Orange County, FL, 4 members of an LA Fitness gym have contracted Legionnaires’ disease. The Department of Health has begun investigating whether the spas and showers located at the LA Fitness location could have been the source of the legionella  bacteria.

News of the Florida cases comes on the heels of several other outbreaks around the country. The bacteria that causes Legionnaires’ was found in a New York City police precinct where an officer was hospitalized with symptoms of the disease. Last week, the Southern Nevada Health District announced it is investigating two cases of Legionnaires’ in guests who stayed separately at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.
