VERMILLION, S.D. (AP) - A crew from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is at the University of South Dakota this week to evaluate a building that has been the source of health complaints from employees.

USD believes the building is safe, but officials asked the CDC to conduct a “scientific appraisal” of Noteboom Hall after some employees filed injury reports with the state.

Former USD employee Nancy Andresen has said working in the building caused her health problems including hives and hair loss. She attributed her problems to mold in the building.

A 2013 analysis concluded the Communications Sciences and Disorders Department should move out of the 70-year-old Noteboom Hall, but the school says obtaining state funding has been a stumbling block.

USD says two CDC industrial hygienists are testing the building.
