The New Hampshire state Department of Health and Human Services ( NH DHHS) is ordering the Sands Resort in Hampton, NH to immediately remediate Legionella bacteria found on its premises.

The Health Department is now investigating two cases of Legionnaires' disease in a residential building in the Bronx, officials told PIX11 News on Saturday.

Three new cases of Legionnaires' disease have been confirmed at a public housing complex in Harlem.

The DHHS says there may be additional test results for samples taken from Sands Resort within the next week.

Legionnaires' disease is caused by inhaling contaminated water vapor, but it is not contagious between people.

Legionnaires' disease is a treatable using antibiotics for pneumonia. Legionnaire's disease is acquired from breathing in small drops of water than contain the bacteria. The Public Health Service of Canada points out it can not be transmitted between people. It can not be contracted by drinking or coming into physical contact with water containing the bacteria (such as while swimming). However, people should watch for symptoms for about two weeks after exposure.

"People who are exposed to it, specifically people who are at high risk to it may start to see symptoms within two to 10 days".
