Legionnaires’ Disease – make sure your system is serviced

Thumbnail

Summary

Do your premises have a water and air-conditioning system? Please make sure getting them serviced is part of any reopening plans you may be putting together.

Main News Story

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.
