Six confirmed cases of Legionnaires’ disease from December, 2009 to April, 2011 have been linked to the Aria Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.  After receiving reports of Legionnaires’ disease connected with recent travel to the Aria, the Southern Nevada Health District conducted tests of the hotel’s hot water system between June 21 and July 4, 2011 and found heightened levels of legionella bacteria.  In response, the Aria has issued letters to guests who stayed there in that time frame, and has implemented “additional precautionary measures,” though it is not clear at this time what those measures are.
