Tuolumne County health and law enforcement officials urge residents to look carefully at their mail, and call
for help if anything suspicious shows up in the mailbox.
Be suspicious of envelopes with oily stains, discoloration or strange odors. Excessive tape or
string, or a return addressthat doesln´t match the postmark are also suspicious signs.
You should set the suspicious pieceofmail aside, and call 9-1-1 if
you have doubts.
Several calls have been received, but so far no actual tainted mail has been discovred. A sample from a Modesto home Friday tested
negative for Anthrax.
