GALLIPOLIS, Ohio (WSAZ) -- An incident where a swimmer may have come in contact with an insulin needle has closed the Gallipolis City Pool Friday.

City Manager, Randall Finney says in a news release the incident was reported Thursday night, but officials have not been able to verify the needle.

Finney says the Ohio Department of Health has recommended that the pool not be drained, but have the bottom thoroughly swept with all the items found collected.

The City Manger says workers will sweep the pool several times Friday to assure everything is safe.

He expects the pool to reopen on Saturday.
