Slovenská Pošta (SI) - Four-phase plan to relax social distancing restrictions

29 abril, 2020

The designated operator of Slovakia, Slovenská pošta, would like to inform other Union member countries and their designated operators that the Slovak Government has announced a four-phase plan to relax social distancing restrictions.

With effect from 23 April 2020, collection of signature on delivery for inbound items where required has resumed. Items are delivered to an outdoor location if possible, and recipients are required to observe certain rules (face covering, use of own pen, social distancing). Such deliveries are not made to customers who are quarantined.  Delivery staff will not deliver items to individual apartments; they will ring the bell at the main entrance of the apartment building.

For items received from 1 May 2020 onwards, standard collection arrangements will resume, but with a collection period of 18 calendar days. If it is not possible to deliver the item owing to quarantine measures, it will be returned to the sender with reason for return indicated as "quarantine".

Slovenská pošta thanks all Union member countries and their designated operators for their understanding.
