29 October, 2020


The designated operator of Poland, Poczta Polska, wishes to inform other Union member countries and their designated operators that the measures aimed at slowing the spread of COVID-19 are still in force in Poland, and will continue to affect its services.

There are no significant changes to the measures already outlined in EmIS 450/2020 and EmIS 346/2020.

In the case of parcel-post items, insured items with advice of delivery and EMS items addressed to persons in quarantine, the addressee will be contacted by telephone if possible before attempted delivery. If it is not possible to deliver the item to the addressee, it will be returned to the post office for temporary storage, and no notice will be left. The delivery will be attempted again once the quarantine is over.
