Smell has dissipated, but officials keep Westland High in Galloway closed while cause is sought

From The Columbus Dispatch: Westland High School in Galloway, Ohio, will remain closed this week even though a strong odor that caused complaints of dizziness and nausea has not returned and test results have been negative for any safety hazard. All evening and weekend activities have been canceled at Westland, a South-Western district spokeswoman said. Engineers and other specialists are continuing to seek the source of the odor that led to two school evacuations and sent 15 people to area hospitals as a precaution.
