Health officials have closed a hot tub at a Naperville gym for the second time in five months.
The closure at LA Fitness, 1836 Freedom Drive, is due to troubles with disinfectant levels and is "a precautionary measure to protect public health and safety," the DuPage County Health Department said in a news release.
"We have been monitoring that particular spa …. feature with them and they have been very cooperative over the past few months, but the levels of this disinfectant have been inconsistent with what the state requires," public information officer David Hass said in an interview.
The department also shut down the hot tub last fall after two men came down with Legionnaires' disease, a form of pneumonia, that was linked to the spa feature. Hass said there have been no additional cases tied to the Naperville gym.
This latest closure impacts only the hot tub, he said. The pool and the rest of the facility remain open. Hass did not know how long the closure would last.
"They're going to work on a remedy that's more of a permanent solution," he said.
