SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) - Tests show more mold has been found in the Spartanburg County Courthouse.

The Herald-Journal of Spartanburg reports (https://bit.ly/2ev6inn) tests from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration were given to county officials Monday.

The August testing showed the problems were not over for county employees and officials who have been battling mold for months.

But Clerk of Court Hope Blackley said new testing Monday in the two courtrooms showed the rooms are clear now so the courtrooms can be used this week.

Blackley said concentrations of mold were found to be in low-quality concentrations, but that additional testing was warranted.

Most of the mold remediation work at the courthouse was completed in late September.

County officials continue to discuss long-term solutions for air quality issues in the 59-year-old building.
