Special Session of Legionella Conference to Address Emergent Health Crisis
December 10, 2020
When facilities are forced to close or reduce occupancy, there is often an unprecedented decline in water use in commercial, education, hospitality and manufacturing facilities. This low or no-use scenario can lead to amplification of waterborne pathogens in water systems.
Since each building and water system is unique, it is critical to follow a site-specific procedure, so your water management strategies prevent public health hazards. If you have a water management plan, it should be updated to reflect risk management strategies during COVID-19 operating conditions. If a water management plan is not in place, one should be created.
Our building water health experts at NSF Health Sciences are available to support your efforts to keep your building safe. We can develop water management program and relieving water related tasks for overburdened facility staff.
Separate from our building water health services, NSF provides an extensive range of services for the water industry to help ensure the quality and safety of products in the marketplace. During this time of national and global crisis, we are committed to maintaining our services to work with you in protecting public safety. Our staff continues to provide comprehensive services, quality support and superior knowledge to help you through these challenging times.

Controlling the spread of COVID-19 requires the collective effort of physical distancing. While this is imperative to save lives from the novel disease, many hotels, resorts, offices and other buildings are now partially or entirely shutdown. As a result, the water systems in these buildings are experiencing low to no flow, loss of disinfectant residual, tepid water temperatures and other hazardous conditions that can increase Legionella amplification, which can cause Legionnaires disease.

These are uncertain and anxious times, so we want to assure you that NSF is taking proactive steps to minimize the spread of COVID-19.
