A warning to Councils, landlords, property owners and employers regarding Legionella disease.


A warning to Councils, landlords, property owners and employers regarding Legionella disease.


Plumb Tomatoes is warning councils, landlords, property owners and employers about the potential of a serious public health concern once the current COVID-19 trading restrictions are removed.

With public buildings, restaurants, pubs, sports facilities, bed & breakfasts, hotels, hairdressers and many other leisure establishments being closed for six weeks now, we feel there is an urgent need to raise awareness of the potential spread of Legionnaires’ disease once these establishments re-open as action needs to be taken now to stop a possible outbreak.

Legionnaires’ disease is a severe type of pneumonia caused by the Legionella bacterium. This disease can be serious if not treated immediately. Most people catch Legionnaires' disease by inhaling the bacteria from water droplets dispersed through taps and showers.

The current lockdown means that the plumbing systems of the above-mentioned establishments aren’t being used. If these redundant systems are not being correctly maintained, which Plumb Tomatoes believes could be the case for many establishments, they can relatively quickly become the ideal environment for Legionella bacteria to grow, as Legionella bacteria multiplies in stagnant water, poorly designed water systems and in water with temperatures between 20 degrees C and 45 degrees C.

Although Legionnaires’ disease can be fatal it is also treatable. However, to complicate matters, the symptoms of Legionnaires’ disease are similar to the symptoms associated with COVID-19 - high temperature, feverishness and chills, coughing, muscle pains, headache and diarrhoea with the potential to lead to pneumonia.

Councils, landlords and employers have a legal duty to assess and control the risk of exposure to Legionella bacteria. Risk assessments, precautionary actions and remedial work can be implemented to protect against Legionnaires’ disease. However, we believe the vast majority of landlords and employers are unaware of their legal duty and of the actions that need to be taken.

These are unprecedented times and never have so many buildings been closed for so long without any thought for bringing these buildings back into use, which if not facilitated correctly could lead to a serious outbreak of Legionnaires disease just as the country and the NHS recover from COVID-19.

Plumb Tomatoes is advising for councils, landlords, property owners and employers to take action now by contacting a suitably qualified plumbing and heating engineer  in order to carry out a risk assessment, advise on precautionary measures and, if required, implement remedial work.
