Legionnaires’ Disease outbreak in Chicago Hotel

Three cases of Legionnaires’ disease have been linked to the Marriott Chicago hotel, and public health officials and the hotel are reaching out to people who stayed there to warn them of possible exposure.

A possible 8500 guests who stayed at the hotel between July 16 and Aug 15 could have been exposed to the Legionella bacteria.

Marriott has drained its pool, hot tub and fountain as a precaution, and the health department said it believes there “is no ongoing health risk at the hotel.”
