JUNEAU, Alaska -- Tests done on a suspicious powder found in a shipping box at Bartlett Regional Hospital have determined it is no threat.
The hospital in Juneau reopened an area of administrative offices Friday that had been quarantined since Wednesday.
The powder was tested for biological threats at the State of Alaska Epidemiology Lab in Anchorage and found to be benign.
Hospital spokesperson Jim Strader says operations are back to normal.
