Question:

A person comes to shul on yom tov covered with bedbugs. Before the gabbai can remove this person several nearby people have been infested, and perhaps the carpet also. Emergency procedures call for immediately putting your own infested clothing into a hot drier, and for immediate chemical cleaning of the affected area. May this be done in Shabbat or Yom Tov?

Answer:

One should get a non Jew to do it.
