Sri Lanka – Disruption of mail operations owing to COVID-19

19 March, 2020

The designated operator of Sri Lanka, Sri Lanka Post, asks us to inform other Union member countries and their designated operators that the government's decision to declare holidays for the public and private sector from 16 to 19 March 2020, to help prevent the COVID-19 outbreak from spreading, will disrupt all inbound and outbound mail operations. All mail processing and delivery is suspended until 20 March 2020. The government may decide to further extend the holidays once it has reviewed the situation.

Sri Lanka Post thanks all Union member countries and their designated operators for their understanding. It will update them via EmIS once the situation has returned to normal.
