Contact the Local or State Department of Health
Report that your loved one has been diagnosed with Legionnaires Disease. Legionnaires Disease is a reportable disease in every jurisdiction, and the only way to prevent a second exposure is to notify the authorities and have it recorded.
Determine the Likely Source and Have it Tested
Not every State and local health department requires a test of the location, or an investigation. Most states only test and investigate where there are two or more exposures. If the authority will not test, then do your own test.
