Revised Service Standards for First-Class Package Service to Occur After the Holiday Shipping Season

Oct. 8, 2021

In light of the ongoing environment caused by COVID-19 and the rise of the Delta variant affecting our customers, the implementation date for the revised service standards for First-Class Package Service will be announced after the holiday shipping season. In April 2020, the U.S. Postal Service instituted an extra day for Priority Mail, two and three day, and First-Class Package Service standards to account for the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. That extra day will remain in place until further notice.
