Update: Italian Post on Measures Taken in Response to Covid-19
According to the designated operator of Italy, Poste Italiane, postal services have resumed in off-limits municipalities, effective March 5th, 2020. However, the following temporary and precautionary measures, aimed at minimizing human contact, will be taken:
– All mail items, including registered mail, insured letter-post items and parcels, will be deposited in mailboxes, with a notice signed by the postman/woman, informing the recipient of this temporary measure;
– If the addressee is absent or refuses to accept this mode of delivery, the postman/woman will leave a specific form (notice of delivery) and instructions in the recipient’s mailbox, enabling the recipient to collect the item from a post office;
– Items rejected by the addressee will be returned to sender.
As of 6 March 2020, these measures will be extended to the entire national territory, until 15 March or until any other information is provided by the relevant authorities.
