It is an emblematic place for the Apple brand and also a place regularly highlighted by the Tech giant during these keynotes, Apple Park is the headquarters of the Cupertino company.
The fear of an anthrax attack
Also, the announcement by Santa Clara authorities that part of Apple Park had to be evacuated on Tuesday after the discovery of a suspicious substance inside an envelope leaves no one indifferent.
It was therefore around noon yesterday that the fire alarm went off at Apple headquarters after a mysterious white powder was spotted. Nearby employees were therefore evacuated for two hours, the time it took firefighters and police to investigate. On closer observation, the latter concluded that there was no danger and the alert was therefore lifted around 3 p.m. However, we do not know what type of substance it was.
In any case, this problem was taken very seriously by the Tech giant, and for good reason, it brings back very bad memories in the United States. In 2021, and in the wake of the attacks on September 11, letters containing anthrax were sent to several members of Congress as well as to the media, causing the death of five people.
Anyway, everything is back to normal on the side of Apple, and the company specifies that all its sections have now been able to reopen their doors.
