Did they have powdery mildew or what type of fungus? Had the leaves died back? Glads are the type of plant that you need to let the leaves die back before digging them up. So, if they were dug up prematurely, I would just toss them.

If the leaves have died back and it was a foliar fungus, you can cut off the leaves for storage of the corms. Here is how:
