COVID-19 CDC Update Legionella / Mold
The temporary shutdown or reduced operation of a building and reductions in normal water use can create hazards for returning occupants.
Two potential microbial hazards that should be considered prior to reopening after a period of building inactivity are Mold and Legionella (the cause of Legionnaires’ disease).
For Mold, a "prolonged period" may be days, weeks or months depending upon building-specific factors, season and weather variables.
For Legionella, a "prolonged period" may be weeks or months depending on plumbing-specific factors, disinfectant residuals, water heater temperature set points, water usage patterns and preexisting Legionella colonization.
Call us for a free consult on how to address these issues, ensure a safe environment for your tenants and staff and reduce liability.
