Legionnaires disease associated with potable water in a hotel--Ocean City, Maryland, October 2003-February 2004.
MMWR Morb Mortal Wkly Rep. 2005 Feb 25; 54(7):165-8.MM

Abstract

During October 2003-February 2004, eight cases (seven confirmed cases and one possible) of Legionnaires disease (LD) were identified among guests at a hotel in Ocean City, Maryland. This report summarizes the subsequent investigation conducted by the Worcester County Health Department (WCHD), Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DHMH), and CDC, which implicated the potable hot water system of the hotel as the most likely source of infection. The detection of this outbreak underscores the importance of enhanced, state-based surveillance for timely detection of travel-associated LD and implementation of control measures.
