They say they spent time near the spa, which was determined to be a potential cause of the outbreak. Legionnaires’ disease is spread through water.

The Sands Resort says they’ve complied with all local, state and federal regulations and have cleaned their water system.

    Interesting article, The Water Hygiene Centre has recently publised a blog about the risk of Legionnaires’ disease in Hotels which you may find interesting.
