Royal Mail has announced a huge change to deliveries from today.
The company has said that from today (Saturday, June 13), they will be reintroducing Saturday post deliveries after it was suspended five weeks ago.
The temporary measure was put in place due to various factors including “high levels of coronavirus-related absences and necessary social distancing measures,” which meant no letters were delivered over the weekend.
A statement from Royal Mail said: “We will resume the six-day-a-week delivery of letters and parcels from June 13.”
In April the postal service made a number of changes in a bid “to protect the health and safety of our people and the general public”.
It announced changes to its opening times as well as temporarily extending the period of time given to its customers to collect parcels.
It also said to protect workers and customers as much as possible, the Royal Mail is minimising contact during delivery.
