The designated operator of the Czech Republic, Česká pošta, would like to inform other Union member countries and their designated operators that, owing to the current situation with regard to COVID-19, the Czech Government has extended the state of emergency for a further 14 days, with effect from 28 March 2021.
Česká pošta will continue to provide postal services in line with public health measures and other restrictions, but will be operating with a reduced workforce. The processing and delivery of all types of inbound and outbound mail (letter-post, parcel-post and EMS items) will continue to be affected, and Česká pošta is unable to guarantee compliance with the agreed standards.
The situation of force majeure previously notified is being extended until further notice, and the restrictions announced in previous EmIS messages will continue to apply.
Česká pošta wishes to thank all Union member countries and their designated operators for their understanding.
