The racetrack at Mountaineer Casino was shut down for a long time because the state employees caught Legionnaires disease in one of their buildings. It was in the air ducts and when they turned on the heat everybody got infected. It's not a contagious disease, it's not airborne. I believe it has to be inhaled directly through water vapor.
