Legionellosis in the shower

17C , some rain

I am forbidden to use the shower at work. Legionellosis has been detected in the  showerhead, the boss told me I couldn’t ride in tomorrow because of it. There must be a way around this, maybe wash in a sink for just one day- it depends how long it takes to sterilise it. I have to wonder about the shower here at home- perhaps I should remove the head and leave it in a bucket of bleach overnight. It’s maybe worse here because I only shower at home once a week (the mostly shower at work). Is this why some people leave the showerhead lying on the shower floor to let the water drain?

    This is one of the reasons that a bathroom should be properly ventilated, or even better, it should be exposed to some sunlight.
