Limited post delivery service starts
Post Office staff have started a reduced delivery service, the Government said today.
A spokeswoman for the Ministry for the Cabinet Office said that postal employees were delivering mail as “part of a limited, yet critical service”.
She added: “As public officers, Bermuda's postal employees have been provided with an exemption to operate.”
The spokeswoman said that “critical mail”, including pension cheques and Ministry of Education learning materials for school pupils, were among the items that would be delivered.
She added that the safety of delivery staff and the public was a “paramount priority”.
The spokeswoman said: “All postal employees 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.”
She added that all staff on duty over the shelter in place regulations had “personal protective equipment, inclusive of masks, gloves and hand sanitiser”.
