France

La Poste advises that due to steps taken in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, including home confinement for the majority of the population, it has implemented a new organization based on three working days per employee available to work. Consequently, the capacity of the postal network will be significantly reduced. La Poste will be unable to accept inbound letter flows in their entirety for the upcoming weeks, with this mail received only Tuesday through Friday. Efforts will be focused on urgent flows and delivery of small packets able to help people during this confinement period which lasts through April 15, or a later date announced by the government. Customers are advised to defer non-urgent shipments to France. For the same reason, La Poste will be unable to receive the following letter items: non-priority, M bags, returns, international business reply, transit mail, and rail and sea dispatches.
