When a dangerous-looking package was discovered Tuesday, Apple Park was allegedly evacuated. When the material was determined to be non-harmful, and the situation was under control, employees were permitted to return to their workplaces.
According to NBC Bay Area, which released photographs of hazardous materials responders on the site, just a fraction of the school was evacuated before the all-clear was given. According to NBC, the mail contained a “white powder material,” according to Santa Clara County Fire Department Capt. Justin Stockman.
Requests for a response from Apple and the local county fire department were not immediately returned.
Apple staff have been working in the offices as the business prepares for a routine return to work in April due to a decline in COVID-19 cases in the United States.
