Legionella risks during the coronavirus outbreak

Employers, the self-employed and people in control of premises, such as landlords, have a duty to identify and control risks associated with legionella.

If your building was closed or has reduced occupancy during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, water system stagnation can occur due to lack of use, increasing the risks of Legionnaires’ disease.

You should review your legionella risk assessment and manage the legionella risks to protect people when the water system is reinstated or returned to use.

If the water system is still used regularly, maintain the appropriate measures to prevent legionella growth.
