Jamaica Post advises that the government has extended a national curfew until Feb. 25. As a result, revised working shifts/hours will continue to apply across the postal network, affecting sorting operations, mail delivery and dispatch of mail vans, as well as timely messaging updates and responses to online customer inquiries. A force majeure continues with an impact on quality of service for all types of mail.
Jamaica Post advises that flooding in northern sections of the island has closed roads, disrupted telecommunications, and caused severe damage to post offices and postal agencies. Affected facilities are unable to open for normal operations, including receipt and delivery of all types of mail, sorting operations, deployment of mail vans, and electronic messages and responses to customer inquiries.
