Honduras – Continuation of lockdown

29 October, 2020


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.
