Mold causing issues in Greer Schools
August 20, 2010
GREENVILLE, SC — Mold forced the closure of five classrooms at Greer High School on Wednesday, and excessive moisture in 12 others could cause them to be closed today, according to WLTX-TV.
"Individuals sensitive to mold may experience allergic responses such as skin irritation, irritated eyes, sore throat, flu-like symptoms, sinus congestion or respiratory problems," said district spokesman Oby Lyles.
Conditions in 12 other classrooms raised suspicion of possible mold growth there as well, although no students had complained of symptoms, the article stated.
Wet carpet in two computer labs was ripped up Wednesday and will be replaced with tile, the article noted.
