It’s still a waiting game for Lied Recreation Athletic Center.

Officials have not received the final test result needed to begin the process of opening Lied to ISU students, faculty, staff and members.

“It is our understanding that the environmental tests went to an outside lab, which may be part of the hold up,” said Mike Giles, recreation services director. “I’m positive the test will come back [clear] — we just don’t know when it’s coming.”

Giles said it was his understanding the results were for a test determining presence of E. coli in the building. 

If the results return negative for E. coli, Giles will conduct a staff meeting to train student employees and prepare for the year.

“We can’t do anything until we get the OK,” Giles said.
