With the recent incidences of anthrax being sent through the mail, the Safety Office encourages all George Mason employees to notify the University Police Department if they receive a suspicious package or letter. According to Keith Bushey, chief safety officer, recipients should keep the item isolated and place it in a plastic bag if one is available, then immediately wash their hands with soap and water.
