Moth treatment scheduled for GRI this weekend

We were just notified that in response to some moth sightings, the GRI, Risk Management, and Facilities have scheduled an organic moth treatment for the entire GRI building this Saturday night, March 11, at 11:00 p.m. All offices, workstations, and reader carrels will be treated, along with meeting spaces, hallways, and other open areas that are carpeted. The building will re-open Sunday at 7:00 a.m.

In preparation, please remove any items from the floor in your work area and place them on your desk, counter spaces, or shelves. These include boxes, paper, or any other materials that might obstruct access to the carpet. You do not need to worry about chairs, chair mats, or trash cans. Please also be certain you have removed any collection materials that might be on or near the floor.

If you have food items stored in your workspace, you should remove them prior to the treatment. If you are unable to do this, you may consider discarding these items when you return.
