Canada Post has stopped delivering mail to a Toronto apartment complex after residents were reported to not be wearing masks in common areas.
Media relations spokesperson, Sylvie Lapointe, confirmed that the company had ceased mail delivery after Canada Post employees continuously expressed concerns.
“There have been health and safety concerns over an extended period expressed by our employees that residents of this apartment complex are not wearing a mask while indoors in the public areas that need to be accessed when delivering the mail,” Lapointe said.
Canada Post’s health and safety committee has been working with the building’s management to resolve the issue, Lapointe said, and a meeting was held between the groups this morning.
The committee has delivered the mail that went unclaimed by the building’s residents, and Canada Post plans to resume mail service on December 18.
“We will continue to monitor and follow our safety protocols and work with the property management and residents,” Lapointe said. “Our top priority has always been to ensure we are doing everything possible to keep our people and the communities we serve safe.”
