Please check out this great information sent to us via email from Joseph Lockery of the Postal Service.

The United States Postal Service is committed to keeping its employees and customers safe and healthy.

The Postal Service® is closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and continues to follow strategies and measures recommended by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and public health departments.  We have been communicating with employees about staying safe and understanding the symptoms of COVID-19 to avoid the spread of the virus.  In addition, we have provided guidance on dealing with customers who may not want to accept mail using normal delivery practices. 

CDC, the World Health Organization (WHO), and the Surgeon General have indicated that there is currently no evidence that COVID-19 is being spread through the mail.  The WHO says specifically that the likelihood of an infected person contaminating commercial goods that have travelled and been exposed to different conditions and temperatures is low.

So far, the Postal Service™ has experienced only minor operational impacts as a result of the COVID–19 pandemic.  Although we do continue to have a temporary suspension of the guarantee on Priority Mail Express International destined to China and Hong Kong, due to widespread airline cancellations, we assure you that we are continuing operations as normal.

You can view our most recent media statement and find a link to the CDC guidance at

Mail service alerts and updates are provided on® to inform the public and the mailing industry when service is suspended or embargoed at Post Office™ facilities for any reason, including natural disasters such as floods or fires and quarantines. Information is updated frequently and updates are made in real time.  To view postal facility service alerts and updates, go to the USPS Service Alerts page on® at
