<<    When they had that Ebola scare at the USAMRID labs in Reston, I believe
they used formaldehyde to sterilize the building.

A slight correction. The building in Reston, VA housed a primate holding
company and they found many sick animals. USAMRID is the army's microbiology
research facility in Fort Detrick, MD. The soldiers from USAMRID took over the
building and euthanized the animals and sealed the building and then fogged it
with formaldehyde. There was no living thing in that building after that, but
it could never be sold since no one wanted to go into it. It had to be knocked
down and the lot sold.
