The hot tub at an LA Fitness in Illinois from which two members contracted Legionnaires' disease last year has reopened.
The Daily Herald,a Chicago suburban newspaper, reported Monday that the hot tub at the LA Fitness in Naperville, IL, reopened last Friday.
Officials from the DuPage County Health Department closed the club's hot tub on Oct. 23 after identifying it as the area from which the two men contracted the disease.
Tests to determine whether the hot tub was in fact the source of the Legionnaires' disease cases yielded positive results, the Daily Herald reported, while tests of the club's showers and pool came back negative. Theclub remained open during cleaning and testing.
Both men who were hospitalized last October have since recovered, according to the newspaper's report.
LA Fitness declined further comment to the Daily Herald and also declined comment to Club Industry today.
