Oct. 30, 2001 | Updated at 4:00 p.m.

A suspicious letter containing an unidentified substance was received at 651 Serra Street this morning, Oct. 30, 2001. As a precaution, the building was evacuated and remains closed while authorities are conducting tests to identify the substance.

The building will reopen once it is determined by Stanford's Environmental Health and Safety Department that it is safe to do so. We do not anticipate that it will reopen before noon, Wednesday, Oct. 31. Employees who work in 651 Serra Street who have not been contacted by their supervisors to make arrangements for work Wednesday, should attempt to contact a supervisor as soon as possible. If you are not able to reach your supervisor, plan to work from home, or report to the lobby of 655 Serra Street between 8:30 and 9 a.m., where someone will assist you in finding workspace. Please continue to check this website and the university's emergency information hotline at 725-5555 for information on when the building will reopen.
