BELOIT, WI (WTAQ) - About 65 people were quarantined today, after patients and employees at a Beloit health clinic were exposed to a suspicious envelope with a chemical inside.

Assistant city manager Beth Jacobson said a man hand-delivered the envelope with powder to the Beloit Area Community Health Center this morning.

Three people who touched the envelope had burning and other discomfort in their eyes-and-noses – and a total of 11 people were decontaminated at the scene and sent to a hospital.

Investigators were trying to identify the person delivering the envelope, and the Wisconsin National Guard’s 54th Civil Support Team is performing tests on the substance.
