Disneyland has shut down two of their cooling towers after a breakout of Legionnaires’ disease has been linked to the park, per AP. About a dozen of cases were discovered three weeks ago in Orange County, with 9 of the patients having visited Disneyland recently. There have been no recent reported cases.

Legionnaires’ disease is spread through the inhalation of water droplets from a contaminated source. It can cause serious pneumonia and can be very dangerous for those with preexisting lung conditions. The cooling towers in question will be inoperative until tests are done to ensure they are free from contamination. (source) 2:58 p.m. ET November 11, 2017
