Officials Are Still Searching For The Source Of 4 Legionnaires' Cases. Disneyland Cooling Towers Haven't Been Ruled Out
After several people in Orange County fell sick with Legionnaires’ disease in recent weeks, officials said two cooling towers at Disneyland had been linked to the outbreak. Those towers were shut down, and officials say they no longer pose a risk to park visitors. But a key question remains unanswered: How did four people who had not visited Disneyland become infected?

So far, of the 15 cases of the disease reported, 11 were individuals who visited Disneyland in September. Two of those who were infected died. However, they were said to have other health issues and did not visit Disneyland, health officials said. The county’s Health Officer, Dr. Eric Handler, ordered Disneyland on Nov. 8 to take two of its cooling towers out of operation. (Bharath, 11/16)
