Oklahoma: Possible issues with mail delivery due to alleged staffing shortage amid COVID-19

DEL CITY, Okla. (KFOR) — Employees of a Del City business claim their mail carrier told them he had no mail for them Wednesday because of low staffing at the distribution center amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The mail carrier came in and he didn’t have any mail for us,” Dax Cavener told News 4.

Cavener, who works at Willards Wholesale Roofing Company in Del City, said their mail carrier blamed a back up at the mail distribution center because many employees are allegedly staying home amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

“People haven’t been showing up at the distribution plant. He said people are showing up at their station but not the distribution plant,” Cavener said. “He said this could be the new norm.”

That prompted some worry about mail service in the coming days.
