There is no directive for the closure of any schools, business houses or any other public buildings, the Ministry of Employment said in a statement yesterday.

It also said that the discovery and removal of building materials containing asbestos at the Suva Civic Centre would not present any threat to the general public.

The ministry said the asbestos, under its supervision and certified consultants from Contract Environmental in New Zealand, were safely stored.

“It is highly unlikely that any member of the public was affected by the incident and the likelihood of any air contamination was slim to none,” the ministry further said in the statement.
