The recent heavy flooding that caused millions of dollars in infrastructure damage and shook up local homes and businesses could also affect the timely completion of biosafety work at containment laboratories at Fort Detrick.

The U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) halted all operations at Biosafety Level 3 and 4 laboratories on May 31 due to ongoing repairs at the Fort Detrick Steam Sterilization Plant because of problems stemming from heavy rain and flooding earlier in the month.
