Accommodation site list for Legionnaires' disease
The list below shows the current accommodation sites in EU/EEA countries with which clusters of Legionnaires’ disease have been identified but where the European Legionnaires’ disease Surveillance Network (ELDSNet) is unable to assess the risk of Legionella infection, or where ELDSNet believe there may be increased risk to travellers. Please note this is not a complete list of clusters detected by the European Legionnaires’ disease Surveillance Network (ELDSNet).
This list will never include accommodation sites in non EU/EEA countries, since ELDSNet cannot formally verify the risk status of the accommodation sites and the actions taken in response to the clusters.

European Legionnaires’ Disease Surveillance Network (ELDSNet) - Operating procedures
This document explains the operating procedures of the European Legionnaires’ Disease Surveillance Network, coordinated by ECDC. It specifically relates to reporting cases of travel-associated Legionnaires’ disease arising from stays in hotel or other commercial holiday accommodation. The aim is to quickly identify and control outbreaks of the disease and minimise the risk to holidaymakers. This edition supersedes the January 2012 edition.
