The site was closed to its 1,000-plus staff members on Wednesday, one day after one of facility’s two buildings was evacuated after several people got sick.

According to the Baltimore City Health Department, 17 employees were treated and released on Tuesday and two additional workers reported symptoms on Wednesday.
