Health officials on Sept. 12 confirmed two additional Legionnaires’ cases in the surrounding community of a Batavia, Ill.-based senior living home, which reported 12 cases in late August, according to the Daily Herald.
Officials are warning residents of Covenant Living at the Holmstad and those living within a mile of the building to watch for respiratory symptoms that could stem from Legionella bacteria found in water droplets.
