Royal Mail will keep customers updated amid any possible delays. This is the latest update on how services are running.
“We aim to deliver to all addresses we have mail for, six days a week,” Royal Mail stated.
“If resourcing issues, associated self-isolation and safety measures prevent this, we’ll deliver at least every other day.
“It’s only in extreme cases – where offices are severely affected by absence levels – that this may not be possible.”
Customers should get deliveries at least every other day unless there are serious delays.
This is “likely” to affect people in some parts of the UK, a statement explained.
It continued: “Due to resourcing issues, associated self-isolation and safety measures, deliveries in some areas are likely to be disrupted this week.”
It added an apology for anyone affected and stated Covid vaccination letters and tests are a priority.
“We’re sorry for any inconvenience and thank you for your understanding,” the post continued.
A statement said: “During the coronavirus pandemic we’ve needed to make temporary changes to the guaranteed times for our Special Delivery Guaranteed by 9am and 1pm services.
“Our guaranteed delivery for Special Delivery Guaranteed by 9am the next working day is by 11am the next working day.
“Our guaranteed delivery for Special Delivery Guaranteed by 1pm the next working day is by 4pm the next working day.
“This includes items where a Saturday guarantee has been purchased.”
