Deliveries delayed: Mail interrupted as some carriers fight COVID, others take break

A spokesperson for the Louisiana division of USPS acknowledged officials are aware of the problem.

“We apologize for any inconvenience that may have been experienced by customers living in the Denham Springs area,” spokesperson Albert Ruiz said in a statement. “Local management has been made aware and is taking steps to address the concerns.”

A mail carrier for the area who spoke on the condition of anonymity for fear of losing her job said the lag is due to a combination of employees taking regularly scheduled summer vacation, getting sick with COVID-19, and caring for loved ones who are sick with the virus.
