As a mail and parcel delivery driver, potential sources of exposure include having close contact with co-workers, customers, and frequently touched surfaces. Please consider these precautions when handling mail and parcels:

  • Stay home when you or a loved one in your household is sick
  • Wear a cloth face covering while handling/delivering mail and parcels
  • Conduct “contactless” deliveries, whenever possible
  • When needing to speak to customers during delivery, always maintain a distance of 6 feet or more
  • Limit contact with frequently touched surfaces during deliveries, such as doorbells or door handles
  • Avoid sharing scanners, pens, or other work instruments with the customer
  • Consider wearing machine-washable work gloves
  •  If you are wearing work gloves, do not touch your face with gloved hands
  • At the end of the work shift, remove the gloves, and wash your hands
  • When doing laundry, wash gloves using the warmest appropriate water setting and dry completely
  • Frequently touched surfaces should be disinfected before and after each shift
  • Use proper cough and sneeze hygiene
  • Wash hands with soap and water or disinfect your hands with sanitizer before and after work shifts, work breaks, making deliveries from drop-boxes and customer pick-ups, and pumping gas
