Yes. There are three different types of this illness.
Travel-associated Legionnaires’ Disease. This illness is associated with travel to hotels or aboard cruise ships. It is hard to detect because travelers are typically gone by the time symptoms develop.
Community-acquired Legionnaires’ Disease. This variation is acquired in a community or public setting. It is typically spread through soil or water including hot tubs, air-conditioning units, and misters in a grocery store.
Nosocomial Legionnaires’ Disease. This is a hospital-acquired version, usually transmitted through the facility’s water supply. This is a very dangerous version of the disease simply because the people who are affected by it are already in a weakened state. This makes them more susceptible to the disease.
