Oromocto Mall reopens after air quality problems
3 people became sick on Tuesday after methane gas detected, health official says
The Oromocto Mall has reopened after three people became sick on Tuesday.
Methane gas was detected and recent flooding could be to blame, regional medical officer of health Dr. Na-Koshie Lamptey told CBC News on Wednesday.
The mall closed at about 10:45 a.m. on Wednesday. The ban was lifted around 5:30 p.m.
Mall management say they did not know whether the issue of standing sewage in the basement had been fixed, but the air quality no longer poses a threat to human health.
Lamptey believes the three people who were sick were assessed at hospital and released.
