The California is giving away free cases of Gastroenteritis to its visitors. If you'd rather not be one of the lucky winners, be sure to wash your hands often, particularly after fingering chips, change or slot machines.

Clark County health officials are investigating complaints that tourists from Hawaii have become ill in recent weeks after visiting places including a downtown Las Vegas hotel.

"It is flu season, and this isn't something out of the ordinary for us," Stillwell told the Review-Journal. "Right now there is just an abundance of caution."

Gastroenteritis is a mild viral infection with symptoms similar to flu, including diarrhea, usually lasting about 24 hours. Bethel said most people do not seek medical attention.

The virus is spread by eating or drinking contaminated food, touching contaminated surfaces or having direct contact with someone who is ill.
