The Atkinson County Health Department has been closed due to a discovery of mold Wednesday.
County Commissioners made the decision to close the facility, and will find another place for the department to relocate.
According to a statement, a preliminary investigation revealed standing water underneath the building.
"We are working with the county commission to get this issue resolved," said Dr. Rosemarie Parks, Southeast Health District Medical Director in a statement. "Until then, we will do everything we can to make sure Atkinson County residents receive the Public Health services they need."
Residents can call 1-855-473-4374 to find out when and where they may receive services. Current appointments will be rescheduled.
