Doctors raise health concerns about Huntington North High School

HUNTINGTON, Ind. (WPTA 21) – Health concerns at Huntington North High School.

Two local doctors contacted the Huntington County Department of Health after voicing concerns about the number of respiratory-related illnesses experienced by their patients who were students at the high school.

The local health department contacted the state and an air quality test was conducted on October 1st, 2019.

The state found concentrations of carbon dioxide and humidity above state recommended levels in certain areas of the building.

At this point, some measures have been taken including relocating students to different areas of the school.

You may recall there are two school referendum questions on the Huntington County ballot seeking a tax increase to make $68 million in repairs to the school.
