POCATELLO, Idaho (AP) — The Idaho State University College of Education dean's office has been temporarily closed after employees experienced a series of respiratory illnesses and rashes.

ISU's Director of Marketing and Communications Adrienne King told the Idaho State Journal that employees were given the option of vacating the office while the university tries to determine whether or not a health issue exists.

King said initial inspections and tests conducted by the university have provided no evidence of an issue. Following the Thanksgiving break, an industrial health hygienist will do an investigation.
