While the Post Office has provided some services during the last lockdown period, it will resume all services allowed on Monday, in accordance with Level 4 seclusion regulations.
Mail starts flowing again while national sorting facilities, the transport department and post office branches have permission to operate at level 4. Most branches are already open and a phased approach is followed for reopening the rest.
“We intend that all branches will be fully operational by June 1,” said Ivumile Nongogo, acting chief executive of the Post Office.
In sorting centers, a shift system will be followed to comply with the regulations on the number of workers allowed on site, as well as to maintain social distance.
The Post Office says that because the shift system is valid and strict regulations must be met, service delivery is not at optimal levels and may delay delivery of mail, including items that have accumulated before the cut-off period.
“Indications are that we can deliver the items that accumulated during the isolation period within the next three weeks. We call on clients to be patient, ”Nongogo said.
