Essential or not?

Postby aardvark_admin » Fri Apr 03, 2020 9:22 am

The mail service has been designated an "essential service".

This includes the delivery of mail to PO boxes.

From this, am I safe to assume that I am allowed to travel to the post office to clear my mailbox without violating the lockdown terms?

After all... why deliver to PO boxes if you're not going to allow the box-owners to clear them?

Yes, your PO Box should be available for the delivery of essential items. It is afterall a contactless delivery method. Unfortunately I have heard reports of some box lobbies being closed despite being classed as essential. Our PO Box is still open and have had some items delivered during the lockdown.
