Canada Post have just published this statement:

On April 1, we were informed an employee had been identified as positive for COVID-19. This employee works at the Binbrook Post Office, and had not been at work since Thursday, March 26.

All employees that would have been in close contact with the employee were notified and sent home. They have been in contact with the City of Hamilton Public Health. We will continue to follow the direction of the City of Hamilton Public Health Service’s direction to keep our people and the community safe.

While these employees are in self-quarantine, we have done a deep-clean and sanitization of the post office. Mail and parcels are not being delivered in the local area served by this facility. Regular mail services will resume as soon as possible, following the direction of public health officials.

This information was posted on the Service Alert page of our website. For more information on the steps we are taking to keep our employees, customers, and communities safe during the pandemic, click here.

Specific to the question on the post office boxes. It is our understanding that access to the post office boxes is available however we are not serving them so there will be no mail.

We will let you know as soon as we open the post office! Hope to be in touch very soon.
