The hot tub and pool facilities at the Guest House at Graceland have been linked to an outbreak of Legionnaires’ disease involving 9 people so far. Jules Zacher, Esq., has been retained by one of the individuals who is believed to be associated with this outbreak.
The pool facilities were closed while the Shelby County Health Department completed their investigation, but as of Wednesday, July 19, 2017, the hotel was allowed to reopen their aquatics. Test results of the water taken from the facilities since news of the suspected outbreak broke now show that Legionella bacteria would no longer be able to survive there.
Legionnaires’ disease is an illness that is caused by exposure to Legionella bacteria that is aerosolized and inhaled into the lungs. Symptoms may include coughing, high fever, lethargy, vomiting, and memory loss.
Shelby County Health Department is urging anyone that was present at the Guest House at Graceland between May 15 and June 26, 2017 and experienced symptoms reminiscent of Legionnaires’ disease to call their hotline at (901) 222-9299.
