The Baltimore City Health Department announced measures to prevent further sickness at the south building of the Johns Hopkins at Keswick complex after two recent incidents caused the structure to be closed.
The building will reopen Wednesday, but measures, such as shutting off water to a section of the building affected by reports of illness, flushing the water systems, recertifying the water system and inspecting the cafeteria will be taken.
The health department is still searching for what caused 12 people—eight of whom were taken to areas hospitals—to get sick on Monday. That followed a similar incident last Wednesday when 23 people that work at the building eventually reported being ill. That also forced the building to be closed the next day.
At that time, the health department reported finding nitrates in a hot water heater in the building causing the initial sickness. On Thursday, the health department said in a news release that has been corroborated.
