Canada Post is reducing its hours, installing clear barriers and offering priority service to those at high risk.
Post offices will open an hour later and close an hour earlier to clean, restock and “provide some relief to employees.” Also, the first hour of opening will be dedicated to those at higher risk – including seniors and people with compromised immune system.
On-time guarantees have also been suspended for all parcel services until further notice. Parcels left at the office for pickup will not be returned to the sender until further notice.
Canada Post is asking those to not come in if you’re feeling ill. If you come in, please keep 2 metres apart and to use debit and credit cards whenever possible.
For home delivery, there will be a knock, drop and go approach, so there will be no need for signatures at the door. Also, customers are being asked to practice social distancing with postal workers.
Any items that require proof of age, identification or customs payments will be sent directly to a retail post office for pickup. Customers will receive a delivery notice card in the mail and there is no restriction when you can pick up the item.
