According to a news report dated June 10, 2017, the Southern Nevada Health District (SNHD) ordered environmental testing of the Rio All-Suites Resort & Casino after only one confirmed case of Legionnaires’ disease had been associated with the hotel. Environmental testing consists of obtaining samples of the water at a facility such as the Rio and then testing for the presence of the legionella bacteria, again according to the news report the test came back positive for the presence of the legionella bacteria. SNHD is to be commended for taking this proactive response after only one case has been associated with a hotel as the normal procedure for most health departments around the country is to wait until two confirmed cases have been associated with a hotel. Hats off to SNHD.
