The water system at Richmond Health Center is being tested for Legionella bacteria following the recent death of one of its employees, according to media reports. The man, a medical records technician, died after contracting Legionnaires’ disease, and the location of the bacteria within the health center remains unclear, though hopefully the test results expected this week will shed some light on the question. For now, the health center remains open and no other cases of Legionnaires’ disease have been found. For more information, see this article.
