Posted by Terry Alexander

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - A brief health scare at the Richmond Health Department Tuesday morning.

A hazmat team was called in after what's been described as an "odd looking letter" arrived for an employee.

The letter was sent to the state lab to be checked out.

The postal inspector will handle the case.
