Army officials at Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, Alabama have confirmed that an employee who recently died was diagnosed with Legionnaires’ disease 4 days before his death.  The building where the man worked – Building 5681 – was tested for the presence of legionella, which was not found; a second round of testing is currently underway.  So far, although other employees have reported pneumonia-like symptoms, no other cases of Legionnaires’ disease have been confirmed.  Building 5681 remains open and operational.
