The hospital is taking precautions to kill the organism in the water. When they learned of the initial case, all patients were given bottled water and bathing kits. Now those water restrictions are only being used for the patients who are at high risk of getting the disease.
The initial patient diagnosed with Legionnaires' is at home recovering, the second patient remains hospitalized.
