The designated operator of Honduras, Empresa de Correos de Honduras (Honducor), asks us to inform other Union member countries and their designated operators that, in view of the measures adopted by the Honduran Government through an executive order of 25 October 2020 to minimize the spread of COVID-19, the entire territory of Honduras will remain in lockdown until 1 November 2020 (or a later date to be communicated in due course).
Although the lockdown is continuing, Honducor is still gradually resuming its activities and, in particular, the sorting, distribution and delivery of incoming mail. It therefore now invites other operators that are able to do so to accept and forward mail items for Honduras.
However, in line with public health measures, Honducor is currently operating with 50% of employees on site, which will have a have a significant impact on the quality of sorting, distribution and delivery of inbound items, as well as on the timely provision of EDI updates and processing of inquiries and international accounts.
Honducor asks designated operators to take due account of the above information, and advises them that the force majeure situation previously notified remains in force, in accordance with article 23 of the Universal Postal Convention and article 25-001 of the Convention Regulations.
Honducor thanks all Union member countries and their designated operators for their understanding.
