The retirement community in downtown Orlando has once again tested positive for Legionella bacteria, despite recent remediation efforts.
The water within the community tested positive for Legionella last month, and was subsequently flushed with chlorine. A spokesperson for the community stated that they did not perform a second chlorine flush of the system’s water because the bacteria levels were below the required levels to do so. Is it reported that the community is now working alongside a water consultant with expertise in Legionella bacteria.
Exposure to Legionella bacteria can cause illnesses such as Legionnaires’ disease. Symptoms of Legionnaires’ disease may include vomiting, high fever, lethargy, coughing, and confusion.
