The Hunter’s Creek LA Fitness tested positive for the Legionella bacteria – one of two Orlando-area LA Fitness clubs currently under investigation – according to the Florida Department of Health in Orange County (FDHOC). The Hunter’s Creek club is located at 12700 S. Orange Blossom Trail, about 12 miles south of downtown Orlando.
The test results are pending for the second club, located in the Metro West area at 4792 Kirkman Road.
Two patrons from both clubs were infected with Legionnaires’ disease, sparking the investigation. The status of those four individuals is not known.
In April, three members of the LA Fitness club in Ocoee, a suburb of Orlando, contracted Legionnaires’ disease, but tests for Legionella at that facility were negative.
