Legionella Bacteria Found In Rhodes Tower
State officials are working on a plan to rid the Rhodes State Office Tower in downtown Columbus of legionella bacteria. Test results released yesterday show high levels of the bacteria in the building's basement. The Ohio Department of Administrative Services is sealing off the men's locker room where the bacteria was found for the third time. Hand sanitizer will also be available on each floor of the building. One state worker recently contracted legionnaires' disease.
