San Luis Obispo shelter plans to reopen next week after bed bug infestation

A San Luis Obispo shelter plans to reopen next week after bed bugs closed it down for a second time this month.

Dee Torres, homeless services coordinator for CAPSLO, says they are being "overly cautious" and are going through several steps to make sure the bed bugs are gone from the Maxine Lewis Memorial Shelter.

The shelter is currently being tented. Once that process is finished on Sunday, more work will be done on Monday to help prepare the shelter for opening.

On Tuesday, Torres says U.S. Detection Dogs specially trained to detect bed bugs will come in and inspect the building.

If it passes the detection, the shelter will reopen Wednesday evening.

Dee says after the shelter reopens, a pest control process will begin at the Prado Day Center where people are currently staying.
