Legionella in Schools
According to the National Center for Education Statistics, there are about 100,000 public schools and more than 30,000 private schools, grades K-12 and about 6,500 post-secondary educational institutions—colleges, universities—in the United States.
Fluctuations in occupancy, which is common in schools, can affect water use patterns, resulting in conditions that support microbial growth that can lead to outbreaks of Legionnaires’ disease. The presence of gym showers, which are sources of aerosols, increases the potential for transmission and inhalation of waterborne pathogens through the potable water system.
