SWIPING DOORWAY FOR LEAD
CCBH sanitarian Tom Barsa performs a residential lead inspection, which includes swiping doorways for the presence of lead dust. 93.5% of kindergartners attending Cleveland schools from 2014-2017 that were screened for lead had a detectable amount of the toxin in their blood. 25.7% of these children had a level of lead in their blood at which the CDC says warrants a public health response. Exposure to lead, even at low levels, can damage a developing brain and cause educational, behavioral and health problems.
