The Department of Health and Senior Services has requested that the following information is printed or broadcasted for those physicians of patients who work at the Main Mail Processing Center in Hamilton Township or the West Trenton Post Office.

Earlier today at a press conference, state and federal health agencies recommended that all postal workers at the Route 130 Mail Processing Center in Hamilton Township and the West Trenton Post Office go to see their private physicians and begin a seven-day course of antibiotics as a precaution while the criminal and health investigation of potential anthrax exposure at the two facilities progresses.
