03-15-05 - WASHINGTON (AP) - Some postal workers in Washington DC, are being given antibiotics as a precaution, after an anthrax scare at two military mail facilities in Virginia.
Washington's mayor says workers at a downtown postal facility are being offered a three-day course of antibiotics as a precaution. The facility has been closed pending a check by environmental crews.
The city's chief medical officer says there has been no report of any illness but this is a "proper first step."
Signs of anthrax have been detected at mail that passed through the Pentagon and another Virginia facility. More tests are being done.
