QUINCY, Ill. (AP) - Quincy University officials are trying to combat mold found in several buildings owned by the school.

Tim Weis, the university’s vice president for business and finance, says the mold in three on-campus buildings and one off-campus building was determined not to be a threat to the health of students and staff. He tells The Quincy Herald-Whig (https://bit.ly/1wCQKl8 ) that an “elevated level” of airborne mold was found at two of the four buildings, in the basement of a sorority house and the lower level of the college’s administrative headquarters.

Although the sorority house was shut down, Weis says the two students who were living there were not in harm’s way. He says the school might tear it down because the estimated cost of fixing the mold problem is much more than the value of the home.

Weis says mold found in a residence hall has already been cleaned up. He says the university is addressing the mold issues in the two other buildings.
