I love hazardous materials!

South Granville High School will be closed for students and staff on Wednesday, October 19, 2005, to continue air quality testing for mercury vapor.

Twenty-one classrooms are yet to be tested by a licensed contractor under the direction of the North Carolina Occupational and Environmental Epidemiology Branch. The testing will be completed tomorrow.

As a result of today’s testing, none of the classrooms sampled were found to have mercury vapor levels that would lead to an expectation of negative health effects in students or staff.

However, fourteen classrooms were found to have mercury vapor levels higher than the recommended level by Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) following a mercury incident. Consequently, a plan for clean up of these areas must be developed and implemented. Following the cleaning process, these areas will be reevaluated for air quality.

I wonder if anyone really will get sick from all this stuff?
