OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Two Kaiser Permanente medical office buildings in Oakland are open again following a brief closure after police say they received a specific criminal threat against the health care provider.

Kaiser Permanente spokesman Marc Brown says the two buildings closed Tuesday morning were opened shortly after noon.

Oakland police spokesman Officer Frank Bonifacio declined to say Tuesday exactly what the threat was, when it was received or how it was conveyed. Kaiser said in a statement it was not a bomb threat.

The buildings are near downtown and house medical offices, clinics, laboratories and pharmacies.

The nearby hospital, emergency department and other buildings remained open.

Kaiser says staff and people with appointments or needed to pick up prescriptions had been contacted and told to show up later or to reschedule.
