A government building that houses the Vermont governor’s office had to be evacuated after some state workers starting feeling sick.

The employees at the Pavilion Building in Montpelier reported having headaches and watery eyes on Wednesday.

The source appears to have been a waterproof sealant that was applied to the outside bricks and that wafted into the building.

The employees were sent home and the building was ventilated.

Administration Secretary Jeb Spaulding told WCAX-TV that he expects all workers will be able to return today.
