Loveland school set to reopen after 52 sickened
May 11, 2011
LOVELAND, Colo. (AP) – Classes are set to resume at a school in Loveland after over 50 people reporting feeling sick there.
The Loveland Reporter-Herald says that 47 children and five adults went to hospitals to be checked out Tuesday.
Several reported feeling nauseous and dizzy at Winona (win-OH-nah) Elementary School.
Firefighters searched the school but haven’t found anything yet that could have caused people to feel sick.
Twenty years ago 130 people, mostly children, at the school were treated for dizziness and runny eyes after smelling an unusual odor. The odor continued to be a problem during the school year and in the spring of 1992, officials determined it was most likely caused by mold in the duct work. The entire system was replaced.
