Statement from the Catholic Diocese of Cleveland on the reported cases of legionella involving St. Columbkille parishioners

St. Columbkille Parish is committed to ensuring the safety of its parishioners and all who may visit the parish. The parish continues to fully cooperate in the Cuyahoga County Board of Health’s ongoing investigation into the potential cause of the reported cases of legionella involving St. Columbkille parishioners. Inspectors from the Board of Health have visited the church building multiple times in recent days and have conducted testing. The results of that testing will take several days to be completed. In the meantime, St. Columbkille Parish is following all recommended actions provided by the Board of Health which include the shutdown of the air condition system in the church building until further notice.
