LA County Health Department Investigating Illnesses Surrounding DomainFest

by Adam Strong in Categories: Events

LA County health officials have sent out an email to attendees of DomainFest asking attendees of the event to fill out a survey if they are experiencing any respiratory issues since attending the conference.

If you attended DomainFest Global in Santa Monica, please take the time to fill out the survey, whether you are sick or not. If you know an attendee who may be ill, please notify them as they should see a doctor if they haven’t done so yet.  We’ve heard reports of others who are sick in the industry who are just discovering that their peers are sick as well.

Two of us at DNN have already been diagnosed with pneumonia.  I was feeling well the day I went in but have been zapped of all energy recently, as pneumonia does.  Others are reporting diagnosis as severe Legionnaires disease. This is a very serious matter and we wish everyone well .  Please see a doctor as soon as possible if you are sick and have not yet seen one !

Please follow this link and let the LA County Health Dept know:  https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/HGN3T7N

If you have any questions you can contact Dr. Dawn Terashita dterashita@ph.lacounty.gov and Dr. Caitlin Reed careed@ph.lacounty.gov.

Thank you very much for informing the community about our survey. We would like to ask everyone who attended the conference, *whether or not they became ill*, to fill out the survey. We can learn a lot about what caused the illness by comparing what people who were sick were exposed to compared with the people who stayed well.

Thank you for your assistance getting the word out to people who attended DomainFest.
