When I finally get active again in postcrossing, the mail processing center is closed and now all my cards are stuck somewhere in Memphis!! It normally take 10 days to Europe, 5 days to USA. Look at those traveling days for my cards !
Yes, the Delta waves are definitely affecting mail delivery around the world sadly.
Post offices in many countries could do a lot more to protect their workers with better ventilation/HEPA filters/CO2 monitoring & better masks. But it costs money, so most them don’t do it and the slowdowns & closures cost them & us so much more.
It’s not really a Covid Issue. The building has structural damage and the union decided its not safe to work there until they fix it.
Well that’s good it’s not COVID, but yeah everyday stuff like building health & safety problems happen too.
There clearly must be a significant risk health & safety wise for USPS to close the building under H & S law.
Hopefully they’ll get the mail going again from elsewhere or a different routing.
I’m finding lots of my mail to the US & Germany quite slow now.
If it’s any consolation, at least your cards aren’t stuck inside of Mobile with the Memphis blues again. (They’re stuck inside of Memphis with the Mobile blues again).
