HAZMAT Response to unknown powder in letter causing irritation.

Isolating people that came in contact with person(s).

99% hit for Rhenium oxide ..pH test negative 'neutral' (not sure what they used to test it and sounds like they're trying to confirm it)

~1624: Trace amount of powder that could have possibly become airborne
described as dust-like very fine powder "like baby powder"

1630: ".. came out and back in .. tested again ... seems like it's dissipating"
