"We were all quarantined for the morning in separate parts of the building just in case it was an airborne virus," said McCully. "The people came in with their 'space suits,' (chemical/biological protective gear) put the letter in a container, sealed it and took it back to Montreal for analysis.
taking those extraordinary measures, it's a little disconcerting. All you need is for someone to say 'It's okay.'"

Anthrax scare hits Quebec community newspaper
Quebec Public Health Doctor Louise Galarneau said it is not uncommon for delays of up to 72 hours before test results are available. She said if the test results came back positive for anthrax (which has never happened in Canada), the paper would have been notified immediately.
The two Lacoste Polo T Shirt Uk employees were instructed to go home, take a shower and wait for the test results, which were promised within 24 hours.

While staff at the Sherbrooke (QC) Record are breathing a sigh of relief after a recent anthrax scare, the paper's editor is wondering about the adequacy of the government's response to the situation.
"When there is no indication that the powder has spread to other people or rooms, you don't need to do as much (as if it circulates)," said Galarneau. "You just have to decontaminate the people who have come into contact with it and the area."

One minute they were there in space suits and unwilling to even enter the building, and the next minute they open it to the public."
Record Editor Sharon McCully said the police were called immediately, putting an action plan was into place and calling the fire department and public health officials. About 50 emergency services personnel swarmed around the building which houses the 5,000 circulation paper.

On Nov. 5, the Record's secretary opened a hand written envelope addressed to the editor. When she opened the letter, a mysterious white powder spilled over her hands, pants and desk. The letter was in block letters, and told the story of a Pakistani family who wished to come to Canada.
Galarneau said people were allowed back into the building for a variety of reasons. The building the Record resides in is old and, therefore, the air does not circulate enough to be a threat. Also, in Quebec, the owner of the building is responsible for cleaning the affected area.
"It seems they really don't have the process as fine tuned as they should," said McCully. "It's easy for someone to say 'Don't worry,' and 'Just wait,' but when it's actually on you and people are Polo Shirts For Boys Black
