Legionnaires' Disease Cluster in Manhattan

    Legionnaires' Disease is not spread from person to person. People only get sick by breathing in water vapor containing the bacteria. In NYC, bacteria can be in cooling towers.

    Cooling towers must be registered and inspected. Building owners and property managers learn how to maintain a cooling tower.
