Any water systems lying dormant
during the COVID-19 emergency are likely to have increased levels of bacteria
present, which means there’s an increased risk of Legionnaires' disease.
Whether you’re responsible for
a business, community venue or school, you will need to make sure your hot/cold
water and air-con systems are properly serviced and maintained before you
reopen – whenever that may be.
Advice and guidance are
available through your local district council’s Environmental Health Team, so
please look online and make contact if you have questions or concerns.
