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.
