QUINCY -- The Illinois Veterans Home confirmed another diagnosis of Legionnaires' disease on its campus Tuesday.

The resident was taken to the hospital over the weekend and has since been released.

"We're glad the resident is doing well," said Dave MacDonna, Illinois Department of Veterans' Affairs spokesman, "but we're highly concerned. We're following everything the (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) is telling us to do."

The most recent Legionnaires' case comes after two Illinois Veterans Home residents were diagnosed with the disease last month. One resident died, and the other recovered. - Matt Dutton | Herald-Whig
