University experiences temporary disruptions in U.S. mail delivery
Posted October 29, 2001; 02:23 p.m.
The main Princeton post office in West Windsor, through which the University's U.S. mail is delivered, has been closed due to the discovery of a small amount of anthrax spores. The post office has established temporary facilities and is now delivering mail that never circulated through the closed facility. The University will deliver this new mail, but all mail placed on hold on Oct. 29 will continue to be held. Decisions about this mail will be made on a daily basis.
State health officials have assured us that the risks of mail being contaminated by contact with other mail or by passing through the main Princeton post office are "close to zero" and that there is no specific reason to be concerned about mail at the University. Nonetheless, we are taking the following steps in an attempt to ensure maximum safety.
