Back in February, it was reported by KFOR that around six employees who worked inside the Robinson Renaissance Building had tested positive for Legionella bacteria. In addition, it was also revealed through lab results that the Legionella bacteria was located within one of the building’s cooling systems.
Now new testing has been conducted on the downtown Oklahoma City building, testing which shows the building has been cleared of Legionella bacteria. This was revealed when KFOR was given additional information about the extensive testing which had taken place at the building since back in February when KFOR first received the information.
In addition, it has also been revealed that regular screenings on the building’s cooling tower will be included to the maintenance schedule in order to identify and resolve any kind of potential problem, including Legionella bacteria, early. Overall, while it is certainly discouraging to hear that about six employees wound up testing positive for Legionella bacteria, it is encouraging to see that not only is the building no longer testing positive for Legionella bacteria, but that a regular scheduled routine for the maintenance of this issue will be implemented.
