Millions Of Xmas Packages Weren’t Delivered In Time

Tribune News Service reports:

USPS is facing a historic volume of mail, which is swamping the postal service and other carriers as the pandemic drives people to shop online. According to the Washington Post, almost 19,000 of the agency’s 644,000 workers are under quarantine after testing positive for coronavirus.

Some are criticizing Postmaster Louis DeJoy, who cut costs and did not run new policies by the Postal Regulatory Commission as Postmasters generally do, which led to delays. USPS also faced changes that slowed mail during the summer, a move a judge called “a politically motivated attack.”
