  • 'Cluster' of cases of Legionnaires' disease confirmed in Surrey

Nine people who have stayed at The Sands Resort since July have contracted the disease, according to the order signed Sunday afternoon by Jeffrey A. Meyers, the commissioner of the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services. They should also seek medical treatment if they've been in the Guildford area since August 21.

New Hampshire health officials issued an order to the Sands Resort in Hampton to take immediate steps to remediate the Legionella bacteria at the resort and notify guests of the bacteria.

Tenants say they are frustrated with the city's Department of Health for not telling them sooner about two cases of Legionnaires' disease in their building.

Legionnaires' disease is a treatable using antibiotics for pneumonia. Others have died from complications of the disease. Most people get better with early treatment, although they may need to be hospitalized. The Public Health Service of Canada points out it can not be transmitted between people. Groups at highest risk for Legionnaires' disease include people who are middle-aged or older, especially cigarette smokers, people with chronic lung disease or weakened immune systems and people who take medicines that weaken their immune systems (immunosuppressive drugs).

Officials said symptoms of Legionnaires' are similar to the common cold or flu.
