PHLPost announces that it will remain open to deliver and accept mails and packages nationwide despite MECQ and GCQ, according to its statement released Monday.
Post offices will be open three times a week (Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday) from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm in cities and provinces under MECQ while maintaining skeletal operations.
Meanwhile, those provinces under GCQ will operate in full capacity from Monday to Friday from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.
PHLPost will prioritize the delivery of express mails, medicines, items containing goods or perishable items, mails from SSS, GSIS, and other public and private institutions containing pensions, checks or loans and leftover mails (vital communications or checks) during the community lockdown.
Acceptance of mails and parcels intended to other countries are suspended temporarily due to local and international flights cancellation. However, domestic mail dispatches shall continue to be transported by land and sea routes until further notice.
PHLPost has been allowed to continue with its services at a capacity necessary to maintain the prompt delivery of services to its clients through its #PusongPHLPost.
Processing and acceptance of regular and rush postal ID will start on June 1 to comply with the government’s strict guidelines in the implementation of health and safety protocols.
The postal agency apologizes for the delay and hopes for the public’s understanding and support in finding ways and means to better serve its customers.
Area post offices are also coordinating with barangay officials for mail delivery, cargo or shipping lines for transport of mails in accordance with local community quarantine protocols as well as the use of its Facebook page for coordination and information to its clients.
