Legionnaires' cases reported by Aria hotel guests

LAS VEGAS, NV Spokeswoman Stephanie Bethel of the Southern Nevada Health District said Thursday that six cases of the sometimes-deadly form of pneumonia have been reported among Aria guests by the Centers for Disease Control.

Bethel says all six people were treated and have recovered.

Hotel officials say water tests in several guest rooms between June 21 and July 4 detected elevated levels of the bacteria Legionella.

The hotel says in a letter to guests that it added additional water treatment and the latest tests show no detectible levels of the bacteria.
