There has been a suspected legionella outbreak in Spring Green, Wisconsin. Two individuals who stayed at the Round Barn Lodge have confirmed cases of Legionnaires’ disease. While there has not yet been testing to confirm the lodge as their source of exposure, both individuals began feeling symptoms 10-14 days after their stay which falls within the typical incubation period for Legionnaires’ disease.

The lodge has since hired an independent laboratory partner to test the water and resolve any problems with the water that may be found. The lodge has voluntarily closed and notified past guests with information provided by the Sauk County Health Department.

Hotels are common sites of legionella outbreaks. Pools, hot tubs, and potable water systems can all pose exposure risks to guests if not properly maintained.

This is an ongoing matter. As information comes in, we will provide updates. [1]
