Mail delivery will return to its regular schedule today, after tests of a U.S. Postal Service facility found no anthrax contamination.

“Final testing has been concluded and no contamination was found,” stated a Friday evening e-mail from the House Chief Administrative Officer. [IMGCAP(1)]

House and Senate officials suspended mail delivery Friday when the postal service reported anthrax contamination at the Naval Consolidated Mail Facility and closed 11 locations that supply mail to that facility, including its V Street Northeast location, which distributes mail to the House and Senate. — Jennifer Yachnin
