he Clark County Health District is investigating a mysterious illness that struck dozens of people at a Las Vegas Strip hotel-casino.

Guests and employees at the Flamingo Las Vegas reported suffering from flu-like symptoms, including nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and headaches.

KLAS reported about 60 people had come down with the illness.

Two hundred rooms were closed so they could be heavily cleaned with chemicals, said Michael Coldwell, a spokesman with Caesars Entertainment, which owns the Flamingo. Coldwell said he expected the rooms to reopen Monday.

The hotel-casino is also cleaning public areas, banquet rooms, restrooms, public telephones, the front desk, and guest and employee elevators. Guest rooms are being stocked with disposable ice buckets and cups.
