Inova building exterminated after bedbugs found

WASHINGTON — An Inova Health Systems building in Falls Church has been exterminated for bedbugs, ABC7 reports.

An employee called the TV station to report an infestation at the building on Telestar Court, saying management hadn’t done anything about the problem.

An hour after the station called Inova on Monday, employees were sent home and exterminators brought in.

“We are aware that bedbugs have been found. The situation appears to be contained to the second floor, and we are currently assessing the situation to determine if there are any other locations,” Tracy Connell with Inova Health Systems told ABC 7.

Employees should be able to return to work Wednesday. No patients were affected.
