“All the tests so far have ruled out the most probable causes for the symptoms that were reported by employees and other individuals with business at the courthouse,” said William K. Heine, director of Public Information for the county in a press release. “We have ruled out possible causes that could be related to housekeeping, construction and general building maintenance.”

Additional testing is scheduled for Wednesday for  substances derived from plants, animals or items that can be found on people’s desks. Once the testing is complete, the courthouse will be cleaned again.

So far the construction area of the courthouse’s East Wing has been checked and air filters in the  entire building were changed for a second time. The county has also determined that there has been no change in the regular cleaning of the building.

Court business is still being conducted and moved to other locations.
