MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Tests done at the main downtown post offices in Minneapolis and St. Paul found no evidence of anthrax contamination, the Minnesota Department of Health announced Wednesday.
Samples were taken from the two facilities late last week as part of an ongoing effort by the U.S. Postal Service to test major postal centers nationwide.
Tests earlier this month at the St. Paul Mail Recovery Center, one of three centers across the country that handles mail lacking proper addresses, also found no evidence of anthrax.
No cases of anthrax infection or contamination have been reported in Minnesota since the anthrax scare began on the East Coast. No new cases of anthrax infection have been reported for more than two weeks in the United States.
