    Samples taken from a mail facility at the Pentagon at a Remote Delivery Facility (RDF) on March 10 tested positive for Bacillus anthracis. The Department of Defense (DOD) briefed all personnel who may have had contact with the mail at the Pentagon RDF. These employees are being provided with antibiotics as a prophylactic measure. Based on the route of mail reaching the Pentagon, CDC has made the following public health recommendations for USPS postal workers at the V Street Postal Facility in Washington DC where the DOD mail was processed prior to being sent to the Pentagon.
