A hotel in Hampton, N.H., has been ordered to take action after the bacteria that causes Legionnaires' disease was detected in the hot tub, water heater, and shower and sink heads of three rooms, state health officials said Sunday.

Public health officials in Nashua confirmed two cases of Legionnaires' disease in the city that are unrelated to an outbreak in Hampton.

DHHS and the CDC will continue the investigation throughout the Labor Day weekend, including additional environmental testing and conducting interviews and re-interviews with the individuals who contracted the disease.

Legionnaires' disease is caused by a bacteria known as Legionella, which is commonly found in the natural environment, including freshwater, groundwater and the soil.
