Resumption of Mail Service to Designated Areas of Italy

Effective March 6, 2020, the designated operator of Italy, Poste Itailane, will resume mail service throughout Italy. However, the following temporary and precautionary measures will be applied nationwide, until March 15, 2020, or until new guidance is provided by the relevant authorities:

  • All mail items, including registered mail, insured letters and parcels, will be deposited in mailboxes, with a notice signed by the mail carrier, informing the recipient of this temporary measure;
  • If the addressee is absent or refuses to accept this mode of delivery, the mail carrier 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.

The US Postal Service is closely monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and is undertaking all reasonable measures to minimize the impact to our customers.
