UPDATED: Police: 'Specific and Credible Criminal Threat' Closes 2 Oakland Kaiser Permanente Facilities

Both locations will remain closed until 11 a.m. today, according to police.

Two Kaiser Permanente facilities in Oakland are closed this morning because of a "specific and credible criminal threat," police said.
In a statement Kaiser initially said that the two facilities -- office buildings at 3600 and 3701 Broadway -- that the closure would stay in effect until 11 a.m. today and again on Wednesday but then clarified that it will be until 12:30 p.m. today and no closure is expected Wednesday.
The closure affects offices, clinics, laboratories and pharmacies as well as the parking garages adjacent to the two buildings, Kaiser officials said.
Kaiser is contacting patients that had appointments at the buildings or prescriptions to pick up to reschedule and will extend hours to accommodate the schedule changes.
The closures are not affecting the Kaiser Permanente hospital or emergency room.

Oakland police Officer Frank Bonifacio provided few details on the specific threat, but said that Oakland police are working to identify who made the threat.
