About the Cover

In a review of Legionnaires’ disease outbreaks reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) from 2000–2014, 85% of outbreaks were caused by problems that effective water management could have prevented. In this issue’s cover article, “Legionnaires’ Disease at a Hotel in Missouri, 2015: The Importance of Environmental Health Expertise in Understanding Water Systems,” CDC assisted state and local health departments to identify possible sources and transmission factors and to recommend improvements to water management during a Legionnaires’ disease outbreak at a hotel. The article highlights the importance of environmental health professionals in helping to prevent Legionnaires’ disease.
