U.S. Post Office locations take precautions to ensure customer, worker safety

How are post office workers being protected on the job?

Even as the virus remains widespread across the region, the post office is working hard to keep mail flowing.

News10NBC spoke with Western District Manager Gary Vaccarella who says social distancing practices, as well as safety procedures have been implemented at local post offices.

“The safety of our employees and customers are our highest priority,” Vaccarella told News10NBC. “We’re not having that interaction with customers, we’re not handing packages to customers, we’re setting them on doorsteps, and we’re not requiring signatures at this time.”

They are working to space out customers, and more locations have added shields that protect workers from sneeze and coughing.
