Guam - The Department of Public Health has accepted Simon Sanchez High School's proposal to cordon off a portion of the Yigo campus where the roof is leaking. School officials requested Public Health pay a courtesy visit to the school Monday during, which they presented their plan to inspectors.
According to Environmental Health Division Administrator Tom Nadeau the proposal may have been accepted but there are certain conditions that must be met: the area must be monitored to keep from being utilized or accessed, must not pose any slip and fall hazard and must not cause any public nuisance such as mold growth.
The school was shutdown about a month ago after repeat violations were not addressed. Nadeau meanwhile says he's still waiting for the school to request for an official re-inspection. Until that happens and the school passes it cannot re-open.
