DENVER — A post office in Denver where at least two employees have tested positive for COVID-19 is defying an order issued by the Denver Department of Public Health and Environment (DDPHE) to shut down temporarily.
Inspectors from DDPHE found employees at the post office at 3800 Buchtel Blvd in Denver weren’t wearing the proper masks, social distancing guidelines weren’t being followed and proper disinfecting techniques weren’t used.
While the health department demands that the post office location close its doors temporarily, the United States Postal Service (USPS) says it will instead follow federal and CDC directives and stay open.
