A Legionnaires disease outbreak has been reported at The Guest House at Graceland, a hotel at the Graceland property, which was home to Elvis Presley.

At least nine people have been confirmed to have been stricken with the illness, according to health officials in Tennessee.

“Legionnaires disease is a severe form of pneumonia caused by Legionella bacteria, sometimes found in water systems. It is typically contracted by breathing mist from the water that contains it. The source of the mist can be air conditioning units in large facilities, showers or hot tubs. Legionnaires disease is not contagious between humans,” according to CNN.
