SNIPPET: "The depot is still waiting to hear back from independent lab results but early indications from the CDC are positive.
About two weeks ago, a worker developed a blister on his skin, which is one of the symptoms."
SNIPPET: "The man's name has not been released. He also hasn't missed any work as a result of the exposure."

Thank you for the bump Jet Jaguar.
we used to get exposed on the forearm once a year i the service.
little ones, not sure how big his blister was, I thought it was nothing, nickle sized.
“The man’s name has not been released. He also hasn’t missed any work as a result of the exposure.”
Man that has to be worth at least a couple days off.
I don’t think it’s a hugely serious big deal, but for some reason, I thought all the mustard gas was removed from that area.
I must have recalled incorrectly.
Nope, not with someone who has good work ethics.
Accidental exposure to a chemical agent has nothing to do with work ethic.
Of course not, I meant if he’s feeling fine why not go to work?
He’s not contagious, right?
Mustard gas turns to acid when exposed to moisture. It’s about as dangerous as spilling car battery acid, no picnic but not really that dangerous unless you get it in your eyes or breathe it into your lungs.
Thanks Mountain Troll.
I asked my husband and he said about the same thing.
