UPDATE: Asbestos Test Results for Gist Hall Delayed, University Plans to Release New Information Tomorrow

ARCATA (KIEM) – Asbestos test results for Humboldt State University’s Gist Hall have been delayed.

After doing a routine check on facility last week, the University discovered possibly disturbed asbestos. As of right now the building is closed until further notice.

Students with finals in Gist Hall were re-located to other campus facilities.

Even an ongoing production of Mr. Fantastic Fox was moved to North Coast Repertory Theater.

Hannah Kho, a sophomore at HSU, says this isn’t the first time she’s encountered an asbestos problem on campus.

HSU says, they expect to release test results tomorrow.
