            Following the diagnosis of Legionnaires’ Disease in three guests who stayed at the Hilton/Hampton Inn Parsippany Hotel last year, the New Jersey Department of Health in coordination with the Parsippany-Troy Hills Health and Human Services Department has now opened an investigation. The guests visited the hotel, located at 1 Hilton Ct. between July 2021 and October 2021. The individuals range in age from 52 to 77 and have since recovered.

            After the second case was identified in February 2022, the Department in coordination with the Parsippany-Troy Hills Health and Human Services Department began an outbreak investigation that instructed hotel management to collect samples from the building’s water system for Legionella. The Department received the water testing results in April which revealed the presence of Legionella bacteria in the building’s water system that is used for showering, washing hands, and brushing teeth.

            The investigation is ongoing.
