At the same South Orlando location where two individuals contracted Legionnaires’ disease due to being exposed to the legionella bacteria, a cafe inside the LA Fitness has been ordered to cease operations.
While the findings of legionella wasn’t enough to prompt officials to shut down the facility, the discovery of health violations including the presences of several live roaches at the cafe, led officials to force the cafe to close its doors.
The LA Fitness was investigated in May and tests sent to the CDC came back positive for legionella in June.
The LA Fitness in South Orlando was one of two LA Fitness locations that tested positive for the bacteria. The other was at 4792 Kirkman Road in Orlando.
