Czech Rep. – Extension of state of emergency

02 March, 2021


The designated operator of the Czech Republic, Česká pošta, would like to inform other Union member countries and their designated operators that, in response to a significant rise in the number of COVID-19 infections, the Czech Government has extended the state of emergency until at least 21 March 2021.

Česká pošta will continue to provide postal services in line with public health measures and other restrictions, but 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.
