Oakwood supports school levies

OAKWOOD, Ohio (WDTN) — Oakwood City Schools reports all of the bathrooms at Smith Elementary are open after a second round of testing came back negative for Legionella bacteria.

The school was in the process of conducting tests throughout August when they found trace amounts of the bacteria in one of the girls’ restrooms on the second floor of Smith Elementary.

Like many buildings during the pandemic, the elementary school was closed in March. Due to the stay-at-home order that went into effect around the same time, experts do not believe anyone was exposed to the bacteria.
