The temporary shutdown or reduced operation of a building and reductions in normal water use can create hazards for returning occupants. Two potential microbial hazards that should be considered prior to reopening after a period of building inactivity are mold and Legionella (the cause of Legionnaires’ disease). The CDC offers guidance for mold awareness, monitoring and remediation and reducing risks of Legionella during and after prolonged shutdowns.
