NSF Health Sciences, an NSF International company, and the National Environmental Health Association (NEHA) will bring together professionals from a ..
wide variety of industries, including healthcare, to discuss the growing concern of Legionella outbreaks at the third annual Legionella Conference. The theme for the next Legionella Conference, Prevention of Disease and Injury From Waterborne Pathogens in Health Care, centers on how hospitals, water utilities, health departments, industry, and regulators can work together to identify best practices for prevention of disease in hospitals, long-term care centers, and skilled nursing homes. Join the conversation on how we can work toward safer healthcare facilities. In response to the current COVID-19 pandemic, NSF and NEHA’s Legionella Conference organizers have added a virtual Special Session to take place on March 9–10, 2021. This 2-day virtual session will center on how industries such as healthcare, water utilities, manufacturing, cultural institutions, and hospitality, as well as health departments and regulators, can better respond to water-related challenges during a pandemic or major health crisis. When healthcare, commercial, and industrial facilities experience low to no occupancy, there is the potential for significant impacts on water quality, consumption of water, and operation of building water systems. This session will provide an opportunity for discussion on how we can work together to develop emergency plans and adapt water safety practices to prevent further public health hazards.
