Burdick Afternoon Classes Relocated

Afternoon classes in Burdick Hall have been moved to the Speech Language Pathology building due to further testing of the Burdick building.  Burdick is open to faculty and staff.

One professor and at least six students complained of feeling ill about 10:40 a.m., Friday. The building was evacuated. No one was transported to the hospital.

Officials with the Conway Fire Department, MEMS, the Department of Health and UCA Physical Plant conducted air quality test, which showed normal oxygen levels, said Conway Fire Chief Bart Castleberry. Carbon monoxide detectors and oxygen level meters installed in the building last week also indicated normal oxygen levels.

Officials have contacted a third company, CTEH, to conduct toxicology and environmental health tests this afternoon as a precautionary measure.
