In cooperation with the Southern Nevada Health District, ARIA Resort is contacting guests who may have stayed with us from June 21 to July 4 at a time when tests detected elevated levels of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) in several of our guest rooms.
Health officials have recently notified us of a few reported instances of guests who visited ARIA, were diagnosed with, treated for, and died from Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS). In an abundance of caution, we are attempting to notify guests who may have been exposed to the virus during this short period.
Health officials believe several of our guests were initially exposed to the virus after an individual paid for a Cirque Du Soleil performer to give him anilingus during an orgy that included five college students from Ohio State University and eight male sex workers linked to a human trafficking ring from Germany and Cambodia. Anilingus is a high risk form of oral sex involving contact between the anus or perineum of one person and the mouth of another.
To protect current guests, ARIA now has in place a rapid HIV test administered at check-in. Once the the results are received, and an individual tests positive for HIV antibodies, we immediately escort him/her off the premises and transfer their reservation to the Luxor.
If anyone has further questions, we have representatives standing by at 1-877-326-ARIA (2742). If you have been diagnosed with HIV and/or AIDS, for reservations, please call the Luxor at 1-877-386-4658.
