Mail Service Slowed in Some Metro Detroit Cities Due to Coronavirus

(Crystal A. Proxmire, April 9, 2020)

Detroit, MI – The United States Postal Service is adjusting to the increase of sick employees, and those who are staying home as a precaution against the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus.

According to USPS Communications Specialist Elizabeth Najduch, “Some Detroit District customers are receiving mail every other day as compared to the normal daily delivery as we match the workload created by the impacts of the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.  We appreciate the patience of our customers and the efforts of employees as conditions change on a day-to-day basis.”

According to the USPS website “The Postal Service has so far experienced only minor operational impacts in the United States as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.”

It also provides information on measures the USPS is taking for employee safety.

“The United States Postal Service is closely monitoring the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) situation and continues to follow strategies and measures recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and public health departments,” the site states.

“The CDC has information available on its website at https://www.coronavirus.gov that provides the latest information about COVID-19. We are sharing the CDC’s guidance to our employees via stand-up talks, employee news articles, messages on bulletin boards, videos and an intranet site directly to employees and within USPS workplaces.”

Najduch did not provide specific zip codes that are being impacted. This story will be updated as more information becomes available.

Information around this outbreak is changing rapidly. The latest information is available at Michigan.gov/Coronavirus and CDC.gov/Coronavirus.
