McGill closes three buildings after positive tests for asbestos


McGill University has closed three of its Macdonald campus buildings after swipe tests revealed the presence of asbestos. McGill states that asbestos was found in the Raymond building, which is currently under renovation, and the university has closed the Macdonald-Stewart and Barton buildings as a precaution. Classes held in the buildings will be held virtually for the next two days, and those that cannot be held virtually will be cancelled. McGill is conducting testing to find and isolate the source of the problem and to inform the development of a timeline for when the buildings will reopen.
