Health officials in California say a “not at cost” risk assessment of the network’s parent company, HealthNet, indicates that the California Department of Public Health and the California Public Utilities Commission “have determined there is no credible health risk associated with the network.”
The California Public Utility Commission said the agency will review the report.
The California Public Health Department said it is still evaluating the findings and has not yet decided whether to issue a formal order banning the network from using electricity.
HealthNet was acquired by a large telecommunications company in 2011.
It provides health care and social services to more than 2 million people in California, including emergency responders and hospitals.
The California Department for Health Care Policy and Administration said in a statement that the state is aware of “a potential public health threat” from the network.
