Lab experts assessing classroom mold

Lab experts at the Department of Environmental Health (DEH) said mold might not be the only issue affecting children as an airborne vector to illnesses.

Laboratory Manager at the D.E.H Ms. Antoinette Johnson said her team is working with the Department of Education in preventing causes of mold development in classrooms and said illnesses amongst students might not be mold related.

“People tend to point at mold as you know I smell musty it’s mold, I sneezed it’s mold, I’m having sinus issues it’s mold, I’m having a headache or runny nose it’s mold and it might not be,” Ms. Johnson said.
