Event details

A police station in northeastern Paris had to be evacuated on Sunday after it was invaded by fleas, a police union said. "Police station closed until further notice!" read an notice stuck to the front door of the station, which is located in the 19th district of the French capital. In a fit of pique on Twitter, the Alliance police union said the station had been invaded by the blood-sucking pests, "making working conditions INTOLERABLE!!!" Despite pest control efforts, the problem, which first surfaced three weeks ago, had not been eradicated with officers itching like crazy after suffering multiple bites, France Bleu Paris radio station reported. And even off duty, some had inadvertently taken the fleas with them, with the high-hopping pests causing havoc back home, even biting their children, a union official told the station. The Alliance union is demanding that the entire site be de-infested, saying it should have been done weeks ago. Union officials are to meet on Monday with Interior Minister Christophe Castaner when they are sure to give him a flea in the ear.

Biohazard Information

Disease name: Animal invasion (fleas)
Biohazard level: Level 1 - Low
Biohazard definitions: Bacteria and viruses including Bacillus subtilis, canine hepatitis, Escherichia coli, varicella (chicken pox), as well as some cell cultures and non-infectious bacteria. At this level precautions against the biohazardous materials in question are minimal, most likely involving gloves and some sort of facial protection. Usually, contaminated materials are left in open (but separately indicated) waste receptacles. Decontamination procedures for this level are similar in most respects to modern precautions against everyday viruses (i.e.: washing one's hands with anti-bacterial soap, washing all exposed surfaces of the lab with disinfectants, etc). In a lab environment, all materials used for cell and/or bacteria cultures are decontaminated via autoclave.
