Itotel management learned yesterday that bacteria had been found in one of its boilers in the East Wing

building.

We immediately closed the building.

An environmental testing service has reported

to us that this

contamination is likely a form of Legionella, a bacteria that can cause Legionnaire's disease (Legionellosis). We
have notified the Maricopa County tIealth

currently following OStIA guidelines for

One Investigation. This environmental

testing service has conducted tests throughout the affected building, which will remain closed until it is safe to
reopen. All heating and cooling and hot and cold water systems in all hotel buildings are being tested today. We
have no reason to think that we wiI1 find any additional bacteria in the hotel. We expect the testing and disinfecting of all hotel systems to rcqmrc about 14 days to complete.

Our check of the affected boiler was prompted by the recent receipt of information confirming the illness of
a

former out-of-state guest of the hotel. Six months had elapsed since the guest's stay. Prior to this notification, we

had received no other complaints or reports of illness. After a preliminary call from the environmental testing firm yesterday confirmed tile presence of the

bacteria, we immediately commenced a thorough testing program at the hotel.

No other guests

employees have reported

a

diagnosis of Legionnellosis, the symptoms for which
