Post offices to remain open, announces new schedule

The Philippine Postal Corporation (PHLPost) announces that it will remain open to deliver and accept mails and packages nationwide.

PHLPost has assured that postal services will remain operational despite the Modified Enhance Community Quarantine (MECQ) in NCR and the General Community Quarantine (GCQ) which are being implemented in select provinces in the country.

PHLPost has been allowed to continue with its services at the capacity necessary to maintain the prompt delivery of services to its clients through its #PusongPHLPost.

Post Offices will be open three (3) times a week (Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday) from 10:00 in the morning up to 3:00 in the afternoon for cities and provinces under MECQ while maintaining skeletal operations.

Acceptance of mails and parcels intended to other countries is suspended temporarily due to local and international flight cancellation. However, domestic mail dispatches shall continue to be transported by land and sea routes until further notice.

Meanwhile, those provinces under GCQ will operate in full capacity from Monday to Friday from 8:00 in the morning until 5:00 in the afternoon.

Processing and acceptance of Regular and Rush Postal ID will start on June 01 to comply with the government’s strict guidelines in the implementation of health and safety protocols.

PHLPost shall prioritize the delivery of express mails, medicines, items containing goods/perishable items, items from SSS, GSIS, and other public and private institutions containing pensions, checks/loans, and leftover mails (vital communications/checks) during the community lockdown.

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/shipping lines for the 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 via https://www.facebook.com/PHLPost.
