SALLISAW (AP) — The Cherokee Nation says it's closed part of a Sallisaw health center because mold was discovered in the building.

The Southwest Times Record reports that several services normally offered at the Redbird Smith Health Center will be moved to the Redbird Smith Health Center Annex.

Tribal officials say an environmental assessment is under way to determine the extent of the suspected mold. The tribe says the exposure to mold was minimal for patients and staff.

The tribe says dental services will be unavailable while the clinic is closed. Patients who normally use the Redbird clinic are asked to go to facilities in Stilwell, Muskogee or Tahlequah.
