Staying grounded

The Postal Service is continuing to limit business-related travel.

The organization has extended restrictions that took effect in March, when USPS began limiting approved travel requests to “mission-critical” trips and trips and trips for meetings that require an employee’s physical presence and cannot be postponed.

This policy will remain in place until at least Aug. 3, according to a memo that Chief Human Resources Officer Isaac Cronkhite distributed last week.

The Postal Service instituted the policy following the guidance of public health experts during the coronavirus pandemic. Employees who have questions should speak to a manger or supervisor.
