The mysterious package was delivered outside the North Bend Theatre and discovered by the manager, who opened it and found liquid labelled “highly contagious human substance,” according to KOMO.
The package was then examined by Hazmat crews who were called for an investigation. The manager who opened the package was rushed to the hospital as a precaution.
“Box has been isolated and one patient treated as a precaution,” firefighters tweeted.

Police said the liquid was confirmed to be a urine sample that was supposed to be delivered to a Tahoma medical clinic, which is more than 40 miles away from the theatre.
The movie theatre said that “all is well” and it would reopen Saturday for screenings of “Frozen 2.”
“Our fabulous Eastside Fire & Rescue and Snoqualmie Police handled the situation with their usual professionalism. There was no danger,” the theatre said.
