Israel – Update on measures to minimize the spread of COVID-19

02 juin, 2020

The designated operator of Israel, Israel Postal Company, asks us to inform other Union member countries and their designated operators that some of the restrictions in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19 have been lifted and the situation is returning to normal.

Regarding outbound mail, owing to the cancellation and postponement of flights, the processing of outbound items may be subject to significant delays.

As regards inbound and domestic mail, Israel Postal Company is still required to maintain social distancing rules among staff and between staff and customers. Consequently, the restrictions set out in EmIS 135/2020 and 184/2020 regarding addressee signature, service standards and application of force majeure remain in place.

In view of the above, delays may still occur in the treatment and delivery of all types of letter-post, parcel-post and EMS items.

Israel Postal Company would like to thank all Union member countries and their designated operators for their understanding
