Heating failure disrupts Minn. Health Dept. lab

January 6, 2014

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Department of Health says it will suspend most lab operations for at least two days after a heating system failure caused an estimated $1 million or more in damage.

The department says the system failed early Monday, causing some building systems to freeze and water to leak on several floors.

Health officials said they would decide sometime Tuesday how quickly they can resume operations.

For now, they've suspended all testing in the infectious disease and environmental laboratories. The department is still accepting newborn screening specimens and will send them to a contractor.
