Courthouse Closed in Trenton, N.J. For A Week - Legionnaires' Disease ? Maybe, or Maybe Something Else
Newspaper has learned that a woman working at the Mercer County courthouse in Trenton, N.J., may have Legionnaires' Disease. The facility is now closed as official prepare to disinfect the courthouse. The woman is a title researcher who performs work at the courthouse, but she is not a county employee. n an official statement, Mercer County Executive Brian M. Hughes issued an order to close the Mercer County Criminal Courthouse and Annex following the incident.

"Although the case is still under investigation by state, county and local health departments and has not been confirmed, the County Executive is taking this extreme measure," Hughes said. "We are taking extraordinary steps based on the presumption that the patient does have Legionnaire's disease and will take whatever steps necessary to ensure the safety of the workers at the courthouse," said Hughes. "The County epidemiologist and the Centers for Disease Control have assured us there is no reason to close the courthouse and annex but we are erring on the side of caution," Hughes added.

Hughes said the sanitization could be completed as soon as early next week. Legionellosis is an infection caused by the bacterium Legionella pneumophila.
