UPDATE 76: International Mail Service Updates Related to COVID-19

On August 19, the Postal Service™ received a notification from Suriname Postal Corporation (SURPOST) advising that due to a rapid increase in the number of COVID-19 infections, SURPOST has suspended a number of postal services. As a result, the processing and delivery of mail will be delayed and proof of delivery will not be provided until further notice.

Unless otherwise noted, service updates to a particular country do not affect delivery of military and diplomatic mail.
