Travel policy extended

The Postal Service’s policy limiting business travel during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic has been extended to Nov. 16.

The policy affects all business trips, including in-person training.

Only travel that is deemed critical to the organization’s mission and trips that cannot be postponed will be approved.

Some travel will be allowed to maintain the efficiency of operations and to conduct certain business. In those cases, travel requests must be reviewed by a USPS officer to ensure they meet the policy’s criteria.

Whenever possible, travel is on a voluntary basis, since some employees may have health concerns or may be uncomfortable traveling during the pandemic.
