Investigation after legionella bacteria found at gym in Essex

ITV news has reported,

A specialist team has been brought in to carry out a full survey of the water system at an Essex leisure centre after a man contracted Legionnaires disease.

The Walton on the Naze Lifestyles centre remains closed after a customer fell ill in November. He’s since been discharged from hospital.

Tendring District Council hopes the centre will reopen in the New Year, depending on the outcome of the survey.
TDC will then undertake any work and changes to procedures recommended by the specialists – taking on board all points they raise.

The aim is to reopen the site as soon as is practicably possible but only when we are 100 percent satisfied that everything has been resolved.
