All-Clear Given After Anthrax Scare at Carillon Lifecare
A package originally thought to be suspicious was found at a local retirement home Tuesday afternoon.
The Lubbock Fire Department and emergency crews were called to Lubbock’s Carillon Lifecare Community just before 2 p.m. Tuesday, after a package was found containing a white powder.
It turns out of that the package and powder did not contain any hazardous substances, but as a precaution, a number of Carillon employees were put through decontamination.
The all clear was given at Carillon Lifecare at around 3:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Any package with white powder is treated as though it contains anthrax until testing proves otherwise.
