More health risks as offices reopen

Updated 6 hours ago
The coronavirus won't be the only health threat lurking in office buildings once they reopen. Stanlgnant water in dormant plumbing may carry Legionnaire's disease, which kills 1 out of every 10 people. Health officials say the bacteria spreads quickly when toilets are flushed and bathroom taps are turned on. Research also shows that rlevators are breeding grounds for illnesses, since droplets can linger in hard-to-ventilate spaces long after someone exits. Meantime, labor watchdog OSHA has issued ipdated guidelines beefing up in-person workplace inspections and prioritizing those involving the coronavirus.
