Mar 24 - coronavirus....could bury the postal service as early as june

Regular mail service could be shut down as early as June, two U.S. representatives are warning, and the effects could be disastrous

Critical supplies, like the post office's billion shipments of prescription drugs last year, could be stuck, mail voting in the upcoming November election could be stymied, and hundreds of thousands of postal employees could be out of work.

"Based on a number of briefings and warnings this week about a critical fall-off in mail across the country, it has become clear that the Postal Service will not survive the summer without immediate help from Congress and the White House," representatives Carolyn Maloney and Gerry Connolly, said in a statement Monday.

"Every community in America relies on the Postal Service to deliver vital goods and services, including life-saving medications. The Postal Service needs America's help, and we must answer this call."

The duo also introduced a bill that would provide $25 billion in emergency funding for the Postal Service, while eliminating the agency's debt and requiring it to prioritize medical deliveries.

The bill would also create temporary delivery points in order to protect workers. It's not clear what these might look like, as the design is left up to the Postal Service, but the language implies something similar to Amazon's delivery lockers that allow people to order deliveries to a secure location other than their home


Post Offices, like hospitals, grocery stores, and other essential businesses, have remained open despite the shuttering of many others as the coronavirus continues to spread. As of Tuesday morning, more than 46,000 cases had been identified in the country, some of those have included postal workers.

Some 13 postal workers had fallen sick by last Thursday,tThe New York Times reported. The head of the Postal Mail Handlers Union told the paper that workers have fallen sick in Miami, New York City, Seattle, Portland and others. It's a small number of the agency's roughly 630,000 employees but underscores the effects the virus has had on a number of industries.

"These negative effects could be even more dire in rural areas, where millions of Americans are sheltering in place and rely on the Postal Service to deliver essential staples," the representatives' statement said

Did notice a huge drop in mail volume this past week. Still worked 9hr+ days all week.

The post office is a staple of American culture. It's not going anywhere. The public won't let it.


Think about all this Rona sh*t going on, all the businesses around you closed, very few cars on the road, places out here looking like ghost towns and yet your mail still ends up in your mailbox everyday. At a time like this, people really get a better appreciation of the function the post office serves.

If the post office fails it's over for America.

I love mail! It’s nice to go to the mailbox and seeing a letter for you. Certain sh*t I hope never changes like mail and newspaper. I know we can read papers online but it’s different sitting down having coffee and reading the paper.

Usps should have been completely federalized decades ago. If it was a real federal agency the workers would get paid better and we wouldnt have to worry about it breaking down every 10 years

Sounds like bullsh*t propaganda to get the USPS privatized. Just last year they were claiming they would 'run out of cash' in 2024, and now due to the coronavirus, FOUR years of cash just went away? I doubt it...plus in 2013 they claimed they would run out of cash in Oct of that year, when it was already Sept.
