NJ Courthouse shut due to Legionnaires' Case

According to officials on Friday, a courthouse in New Jersey was closed following the diagnosis of Legionnaires’ disease in one of the workers and it will remain shut at// least until Monday.

State and county officials denied being aware of the woman’s medical condition, partly due to privacy rules. The woman’s condition has been reported by the hospital to be critical. She is an independent title searcher with the Mercer County clerk's office.

Once the court officials got to know about the woman’s presumptive diagnosis, the courthouse and an adjacent annex were immediately shut for testing. So far, no evidence of the bacteria causing the disease; Legionella, has been found.

Mercer County Executive Brian M. Hughes said, "Authorities are erring on the side of caution." According to the State health department spokesman Tom Slater, the woman’s diagnosis was confirmed.

Legionellosis is a severe form of pneumonia. After the 1976 outbreak at an American Legion convention in Philadelphia, it was known as Legionnaires’ disease. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, indoor cases are usually associated with poorly maintained cooling towers and potable water systems.
