The Recent Report of the Department of Investigations on the Board of Elections

New York City Council Committee Room
City Hall
New York, NY 10007
United States

On December 30, 2013 (DOI) released a 70 page report by its BOE Inspector General’s Unit formed in June 2013, available at: http://www.nyc.gov/html/doi/html/doireports/public.shtml. The result of a six month investigation into the operations of the NYC BOE, the report included a comprehensive list of reforms the agency encouraged the board to adopt for future elections. As the NYC BOE plays a critical role in our city’s elections and we depend on them to ensure a fair democratic process that does not discourage voter participation, the report is one which deserves the attention of the City Council.

Upper East Side Legionnaires' Disease Inforamtion Session with Department of Health

Lenox Hill Neighborhood House
331 East 70th Street
New York, NY 10021
United States

Location Subject to Change

Notice to Residents of Lenox Hill

The Health Department is investigating a cluster of Legionnaires’ disease in a section of Lenox Hill. Seven people have been confirmed with Legionnaires’ disease in the last 11 days. The risk to most people is low, but if you have flu-like symptoms, please see your medical provider.

What is Legionnaires’ disease?
Legionnaires’ disease (or Legionellosis) is a type of pneumonia. It is caused by bacteria (Legionella) that grow in warm water.

Is the disease contagious?
No. Legionnaires’ disease is not spread from person to person. People only get sick by breathing in water vapor containing the bacteria. People who are sick cannot make others sick.

Who is at risk?
Groups at high risk include people who are middle-aged or older—especially cigarette smokers—people with chronic lung disease or weakened immune systems and people who take medicines that weaken their immune systems (immunosuppressive drugs).

What are the symptoms of Legionnaires’ disease?
Symptoms are like the flu and can include fever, chills, muscle aches and cough. Some people may also have headaches, fatigue, loss of appetite, confusion or diarrhea.

What should I do if I think I have Legionnaires’ disease?
If you have flu-like symptoms, seek medical attention right away, especially if you have a medical condition that affects your breathing, like emphysema, or if you are a smoker.

What is the treatment for Legionnaires’ disease?
The disease is treated with antibiotics. Most people get better with early treatment, although they may need to be hospitalized. Some people may get very sick or even die from complications of the disease. That’s why it is important to get medical help right away if you develop symptoms.
