Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information

This page is a resource for members to find information on Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).

Your union officers are holding ongoing conversations with the Postal Service about COVID-19. We will continue to be in discussions with the Postal Service as the spread of the disease widens around the world and new information is learned.

The APWU always prioritizes health and safety and is engaged on this issue. We are not allowing the Postal Service to take a passive approach to the risks of the disease.
