Regular mail delivery, outside of Social Welfare cheques, has been suspended.

The T&T Postal Corporation (TTPost) advised yesterday that it is one of the measures announced by TTPost, in light of the COVID-19 virus.

All non-essential services and activities are suspended until April 15.

The other measures are:

• Post offices will be closed, except where such offices are used for delivery of pension cheques; in which case the post office will remain open from 8 am to 4 pm. All other services at these and other post offices will be suspended during the period March 31 to April 15.

• Pension cheques will be distributed by the delivery officers or collected at the delivery outlets, in the usual manner from April 1. Cheques in Tobago will be distributed from April 2 due to flight constraints.

• Courier Services, including the delivery of CDAP medication, will continue.

• Inbound mails and parcels will continue to be cleared from the airport daily to avoid damages and secure these items.
