City worker infected in LA typhus outbreak

The California Department of Public Health reported recently that there were 167 confirmed typhus cases during 2018, and the majority of them were in Los Angeles County.

Wesson's motion says there has been a "noticeable increase in the volume of rodents in the area and within city buildings", and also referenced a recent report by NBC4, which featured a City Hall East employee who is convinced she contracted typhus in November through contact with fleas in her City Hall East office.

All carpets at Los Angeles City Hall may need to be replaced amid a Typhus outbreak that may have infected one city employee while at work, according to a motion filed by Council President Herb Wesson on Wednesday.

"Employees shouldn't have to come to work anxious about rodents", Wesson, who removed his own office's carpet in November, told the Los Angeles Times. During a Halloween party a year ago, a rat chewed through a pumpkin decoration.

"Employees shouldn't have to come to work anxious about rodents", Wesson said he told the outlet, adding that he "intend (s) to do whatever it is we need" to eliminate the problem. Wesson told the Times that he moved his staff out of City Hall to a nearby building because the situation had gotten so bad.

Greenwood never thought showing up for work at City Hall could leave her fighting for her life.

According to the Times, a deputy city attorney contracted typhus a year ago and had a 102-degree fever.

The California Department of Public Health first reported a Typhus outbreak in downtown Los Angeles in October 2018, saying that four people had been infected, and that the number was expected to rise. Greenwood told the Times she has not returned to work since November because she is "terrified of entering the building again until they do something".

That could include ripping out all the building's carpets - for which Wesson is seeking a cost estimate.

Los Angeles is now coping with an outbreak of typhus, a tick and flea-borne disease commonly spread by vermin such as rats, cats and possums.

He's also pushing for a policy requiring employees to secure their food after hours and for custodians to toss out food that's left out. The CDC says it most often occurs where rats and their fleas live.

Flea-borne typhus can cause high fever, chills, headache and rashes in humans.
