Rat Infestation

Rat infestation on CHS loading dock, including the medical waste accumulation site. Don't forget to secure the lids on the medical waste barrels!

Recently there was a large rat nest discovered and removed on the B-loading dock of CHS. Shortly thereafter a rat was observed coming out of a biohazard container in the medical waste accumulation site at the CHS B-loading dock. The rat was attempting to enter a biohazard bag that contained used rodent cages but only managed to breach the outer bag.
