Disneyland shut down two of their cooling towers after multiple cases of Legionnaires' disease was found in park visitors.

Disneyland shut down two bacteria-contaminated cooling towers after the cases of the disease were reported. Disney independently chose to take the towers out of operation the day before, Good said. In a statement, Dr. Pamela Hymel, chief medical officer for Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, said Disneyland learned about the Legionnaires' cases on October 27.

Ten of the twelve were hospitalized and one person "with additional health issues" died, according to health officials.

On Tuesday, Disney took the towers down again because the health agency ordered them to verify they were free of the Legionella contamination. The towers were chemically treated to combat the problem, and there is no ongoing threat to guests' health, the Register reports.

A district judge ordered that two of those years must be served under the supervision of the Oklahoma Department of Corrections. The daughter said that her mother had convinced her at the time by saying that their marriage would be considered legal.

The towers are near the New Orleans Square Train Station, more than 100 feet away from parts of the theme park accessible to guests, a Disneyland Resort spokeswoman said Friday, the Los Angeles Times reported.

According to Good, during the week of October 20-26 the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention notified Health Care Agency staff of the Legionnaire's disease cases that occurred in September. "We have proactively shared this information with OCHCA and given our actions, they have indicated there is no longer any known risk associated with our facilities".

Test results for the towers could take up to two weeks.

Legionellosis refers to illness caused by Legionella bacteria and usually results from exposure to contaminated water aerosols or from aspirating contaminated water.

They advise anyone considering visiting the properties to "perform additional research for information" when making travel plans. Three hotel resorts in Mexico were flagged with the new warning tag yesterday.

Case ages range from 52-94. Of that total, nine had visited the park in September, and the remainder lived or traveled in Anaheim.

Cooling towers provide cold water for various uses at Disneyland and give off a vapor or mist that could have carried the Legionnella bacteria.

People who have contracted Legionnaire's disease are not contagious.
