13 Mail Carriers Confirmed with COVID at Madou 麻豆郵局13郵差確診 中華郵政急調度支援

In Madou District of Tainan, 13 mail carriers have recently been confirmed with COVID-19. Chunghwa Post quickly arranged to have delivery persons from other Tainan branch subbing in to keep daily operations normal. 


The Chunghwa Post sent personnel from the headquarter to Madou District Post Office in Tainan to get involved with the situation and to go through COVID-prevention measures with the local staff. Thirteen out of 19 local postal delivery persons from the Madou District are down with COVID. It is a lot of work for the leftover 6 delivery persons to deliver to 15 areas.

Local resident: “It is tough for postal workers, especially for delivery persons since they are more easily exposed to the virus from being in contact with many people. ”

Local resident: “If the mail gets here slower so be it. I am not going to worry about it.”

Most residents are understanding of the situation with late delivery. Chunghwa Post arranged to have 10 mail carriers from neighboring post offices to sub in at Madou District temporarily to keep daily operations running normally.

Cheng Pei-ju, Assistant Manager, Tainan Main Post Office: “We have 10 mail carriers filling in already. Internal operation is not too much affected. We will keep the postal work running normally. Packages, registered mail, and express mail will be handled first. Normal mail will be delivered within 5 days going by the date received at the post office.”

Another round of thorough disinfection has already been conducted at the Madou District Post Office since the outbreak. The post office is also handing out rapid test kits to the staff starting on Monday, May 23 for staff members to test themselves before work. Employees can only come to work after they have tested negative. All operations are back to normal. Companies and businesses learn to always be prepared to respond to COVID-19 to alleviate its impact. 

 

 

 

台南麻豆郵局的投遞股,總人數19名,近期就有13名確診新冠病毒,將近6成,剩下6名郵差要送15個區段,人力明顯不足。

民眾說:「郵局的工作人員真的蠻辛苦的,尤其是郵差,像疫情這樣多少會受到影響。」

另一名民眾也提到:「慢到就慢到,會到就到了,我們用平常心來看待。」

疫情期間,民眾大多體恤郵差的辛苦。而中華郵政台南郵局表示,針對這個狀況,日前緊急調派10名鄰近單位人力來支援,盡量維持營運正常。

台南郵局副理鄭沛如表示:「我們已經補足了10個人、10個外勤人力,所以其實影響範圍不大,我們一定讓郵務正常運作,以包裹、掛號、快捷優先,然後平信採5天之內送完,以先進先出的原則。」

麻豆郵局傳出多人確診後,內部也大清消,週一起麻豆郵局也將提供快篩給員工,上班前須先快篩,陰性後才可上班和投遞。櫃台目前正常營運,疫情期間影響各行各業,各單位內部也共體時艱互相支援。
