leigionnaires  is found in showers and taps and in nice moist enviroment thats warm.In the hospital we had to run  the taps and showers for 2mins each week to clear the pipes of this threat among many.With anything it is wise to take procautions by wearing gloves and a mask .I have worked in many situations where the threat was very real (including swine flu)and to be sure good protection is a must .So with anything even gardening you would be silly not to.
