The Clark County Public Health Department and PeaceHealth announced a joint investigation. Dr. Alan Melnick, with Clark County Public Health said they were awaiting test results for more details on the level of risk.

Investigators said it could take until May 20th to get results from the test samples. At that time, certified letters will be mailed to all patients who might have received care from the former employee.
