Some loser apparently decided to pull an "icing sugar in the mail" scare in my government office today. Probably a tantrum by some ijjit unable to get into college. It's not like our standards are remotely strict or anything. (We're pretty much a "first qualifies, first serve" institution, and most courses only require a high school diploma or equivalent.)
I found out just a few minutes too late to avoid getting caught up in the quarantine.
Apparently they're driving in a hazmat team from Nova Scotia, and they're expecting it to be eight hours minimum before they arrive, let alone there being any chance of getting an all clear.
Nobody seems to be trying to keep a lid on this, so I'm probably free to post at will.
