Post Office Delivering Important Local Mail

April 23, 2020

Postal workers have been delivering critical mail as pension cheques and Ministry of Education learning materials for school children.

A government spokesperson said, “The Bermuda Post Office [BPO] is advising the public that its postal workers are currently delivering local mail as part of a limited, yet critical service.

“As public officers, Bermuda’s postal workers have been provided with an exemption to operate. Postal workers have been delivering such critical mail as pension cheques and Ministry of Education learning materials for school children.

“As the public can appreciate, the safety and wellbeing of the public and the BPO postal workers is a paramount priority. All postal workers who are engaged in residential deliveries only deliver to mailboxes which are located on the boundaries of properties. There is no interaction with the public.

“In keeping with the Department of Health guidelines, all employees who are required to work during the Shelter in Place period have PPE equipment, inclusive of masks, gloves, and hand sanitizer.”

    All of my mail goes to my PO Box. Anyone know if visiting the mailbox is a legitimate trip? Also, is there anyone working at the branches to actually place things in the mailbox?

    I just got delivered a parcel notice. How am I suppose to pick that up if the post office is closed, and no one is answering the phone?

    I am waiting on an incredibly important piece of mail, that I know is on island. Other countries are still delivering mail, why aren’t we? It’s not as if the postmen travel around in groups.

    • Dumb says:

      If it was incredibly important you should have used a courier!
