Lately there've been lots of reports about folks becoming ill in Vegas. After the issues at the Rio, I hope the health department has some advice for them. These are only a few ways I'd suggest to possibly avoid it. If the casino rulers read here, I'd suggest that they: Provide a hand sanitizer on every type of dining room table, especially in buffets where every serving spoon gets picked up by everyone over and over .. Use clean clothes with an antiseptic spray on all the slot buttons. (Ever watched the staff push chairs in and then wipe off the machines with yucky old grey rags?) Train bar staff/CWs/food servers to wash hands again after picking up a round of dirty beer bottles, glasses, dishes, etc. Train staff in the basics of sneezing or coughing. It's into the elbow, not your hands. Encourage a kick in the butt to anyone that doesn't wash their hands before leaving the restroom. (Yeah, I know they can't do this ) Clean the air vents in hotel rooms. If worse comes to worst, have room service for purchase of basic to advanced health kits ranging from band aids to cold medicine to Pepto Bismol to Imodium and Gravol, etc, right down to a call in medic. If I owned a Strip drug store, I'd have a delivery service for these type of items. A little prevention from all of us is win/win. We can can keep having a healthy vacation and the casinos can keep winning our money. JMO.
