Uruguay – Steps taken to minimize the spread of COVID-19

23 March, 2020

The designated operator of Uruguay, Correo Uruguayo, wishes to inform the designated operators of other UPU member countries of the following measures to minimize the spread of the coronavirus:

  • Staff numbers in postal facilities are being reduced as far as possible, and teleworking introduced where feasible;
  • Direct physical contacts are being minimized, and appropriate hygienic measures introduced;
  • Post offices with large numbers of customers are being kept closed, with special collection points set up directly with customers.

The above steps, along with the suspension and reduction of international flights and connections, will impact inbound and outbound postal operations and delivery.

Correo Uruguayo appreciates the understanding of other designated operators.
