November 26, 2019

Seattle Children's Hospital says 10 of its operating rooms will now remain closed through January to deal with the Aspergillus mold outbreak, according to an article on the KOMO News website.

The hospital is installing in-room HEPA filtration in those 10 operating rooms and two equipment storage rooms.

The installation was scheduled to be complete by July, but the hospital says they will now be fully installed by the end of January.

The hospital has three operating rooms still functioning, but many surgical cases are being sent to other local hospitals.
