The designated operator of Lithuania, AB Lietuvos paštas, asks us to inform other Union member countries and their designated operators that the government placed 12 municipalities under quarantine from 26 October, and subsequently introduced a three-week nationwide lockdown from 7 to 29 November, which may be extended.
To eliminate customer interaction at the doorstep and meet physical distancing requirements, AB Lietuvos pastas has suspended the collection of a signature on delivery for letter-post items and, wherever possible, is directing mail to parcel lockers for contact-free collection. Courier items are still delivered to the door, but the four last digits of the recipient's ID document are recorded in place of a signature.
These measures will affect the processing and delivery of all types of postal items. The usual service delivery standards still cannot be guaranteed, and the force majeure situation remains in force.
AB Lietuvos paštas thanks all Union member countries and their designated operators for their understanding
