The following was reported: My entire apartment building (xxx) was sprayed by a company called (name) on Nov 12 &13, 2019 I initially attempted to move back on Friday Nov 15 (48 hours post spray - (name) told tenants it was safe to return 6-24 hours post spray). The smell and fumes in the common areas of the building were horrible and worse in my apartment. In spite of having windows open in my suite I was unable to last in my apartment due to severe headaches, nausea, eye and throat irritation (in spite of wearing a respirator mask). So I left the building. I was out of the apartment for the next 12 days except for short stops to open windows when weather was warm, check mail etc. I attempted to stay in my apartment overnight on Nov 26 & Nov 27. I experienced severe headaches both of the following days as a result which got increasingly worse after staying in the building on the second night. I again was forced to find alternate accommodation and haven't been able to move back since. I was in my apartment for 3 hours last night (Dec 5) and left due to a headache. After sleeping at a different location on Nov 28 - my headaches resolved by the following day. Please note, I am not someone who gets headaches regularly nor do I have environmental sensitivities. I am very healthy individual who normally has no health concerns.

The following was reported: Severe headaches (initial re-entry into my apartment was 48 hours post spray). It is over 3 weeks post spray and I'm still getting moderate to severe headaches depending on length of stay in my apartment. Nausea Eye irritation Throat irritation Symptoms intensify if window of the apartment is closed and symptom intensify with increased duration of time in the apartment (regardless of if windows are open or not). Symptoms intensify if I am closer to surfaces that were sprayed (ie when squatting down to tie shoes - strong chemical smell from baseboards was noted and intensification of headaches). Symptoms resolve with leaving the building - time required for symptoms to resolve relate to the time that I spent in the building. Symptoms improve if I wear an N95 mask while in the building, symptoms improve some with windows being open - however they are still present/ limit time I can spend in the apartment.
