Guyana – Disruption to mail operations owing to COVID-19

23 März, 2020

The designated operator of Guyana, Guyana Post Office Corporation, asks us to inform other Union member countries and their designated operators that, in view of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, it received a Government directive on 18 March 2020 stating that staff must work on a rotation basis. This will directly affect all postal operations.

Furthermore, all entry ports into Guyana have been closed for 14 days.

As a consequence, delays are to be expected in the handling and delivery of all mail (letter-post, parcel-post and EMS items).

Guyana Post Office Corporation thanks all Union member countries and their designated operators for their understanding. It will update them via EmIS once the situation has returned to normal.
