CDC: Legionnaires Test Positive At Quincy Vets Home
(Quincy, IL) — There are still traces of Legionnaires disease at the veterans home in Quincy. The Centers for Disease Control yesterday said that one of the 48 tests they conducted at the home came back positive for the disease. The tests come after two outbreaks at the home, 15 people died during a Legionnaires outbreak at the Quincy home back in 2015, one person died from the disease back in an outbreak in October. Illinois lawmakers have scheduled a hearing next month to get answers about why the home can’t seem to shake the disease.
