Legionnaires’ Disease Has Vegas History
(Las Vegas, NV) — This week’s announcement that six cases of Legionnaires’ disease were reported at the Aria resort isn’t the first case to hit Sin City. The Southern Nevada Health District issued a warning in 2008, after four guests at the Polo Towers contracted the disease.
In a letter to about 18,000 guests, Aria vice president Paul Berry says the six guests were exposed to bacteria from the hotel’s water supply between June 21st and July 4th. The water has been treated, and Berry says tests have shown “no detectable levels of active Legionella.” If you have questions or concerns, the hotel has set up a hotline at 1-877-326-ARIA.
