People can get Legionnaires' disease when they breathe in small droplets of water in the air that contain the bacterium.

New Hampshire averages about 32 cases of Legionnaires' disease each year. Others have died from complications of the disease.

They're not exactly calling it an outbreak, but two people have reportedly contracted Legionnaires' disease at Fort Independence Houses, continuing what seems to be a growing epidemic of the bacteria popping up in various NY facilities over the past year.

Those with symptoms should call their doctor and ask about testing for Legionnaires' disease.

Officials believe the current overall health risk to the community is low. It can not be transmitted between people, however.

He added: "We said when [Trump] was elected that when he did something good for workers, we'd support him". Trump wants Canada to end its tariffs on dairy products, which can run almost 300 percent.

Most healthy people who are exposed to the bacteria won't contract the disease, but about 1 in 10 people who contract the infection will die from it, according to the CDC.

DPHS and experts from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are working diligently to identify a potential source of the bacteria.

Legionnaires' disease is a treatable using antibiotics for pneumonia.

Legionnaires' disease symptoms are very similar to other types of pneumonia and can include a cough, shortness of breath, fever, muscle aches, and headaches. The agency noted the illness is underreported and there may have been more cases. There is no vaccine.

Most people don't get sick from exposure, but those with chronic health conditions, the elderly or smokers are more at risk. People who take drugs that weaken their immune system, such as chemotherapy, or suffer from underlying illnesses like diabetes, kidney failure, or liver failure, are also at a greater risk.
