Baltimore residents facing long waits for mail delivery

BALTIMORE — We’ve been hearing from people all over the city asking: where is my mail?

One of the side effects of the coronavirus pandemic— longer wait times and overworked postal offices.

We asked the United States Postal Service if delays in the area were due to a lack of staffing and heavy mail volume because of the coronavirus.

They got back to us and said they are doing everything they can to get mail out as quick as possible.

For Melanie Savage— leaving the house with her daughter who’s severely disabled, isn’t an option.

“Medication is essential for my daughter to control her seizures,” Savage said. “It was ordered from the pharmacy. I couldn’t go pick it up because we’re under this lockdown and I can’t move her around.”

    Typical USPS response to a question. Someone asks ‘why are there delays’ and the PO responds with ‘We’re doing everything we can’.
    They don’t ANSWER the question.
