A resident of a Northwest D.C. retirement community has been diagnosed with Legionnaires’ disease, prompting concern that other residents could be at risk of contracting a dangerous, pneumonia-causing bacteria that can spread through a building’s plumbing.
Residents of three buildings in the Ingleside at Rock Creek senior community on Military Road were instructed to take precautions. The condition of the person diagnosed is unclear.
