The person releasing such fumes or gases shall cause a notice of warning to the public to be placed in a conspicuous place at each entrance of the premises where such gases or fumes are to be released.
Unless the fumigant to be used is approved by the United States Public Health Service as not affecting foods, all food and drink in the building or room being fumigated shall be removed, except when such food and drink are given a special exemption, when placed in sealed containers or when the fumigation is performed for the purpose of destroying vermin infesting the same.
No person, other than a licensed fumigator or a City official in the discharge of his or her duty, shall be permitted to enter into any area or chamber in which fumigating work is in progress.
