SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) Do postal workers have to wear a mask when delivering the mail? It’s a question several WCAX viewers have reached out asking us about.
Matthew Granai of South Burlington says he’s seen one postal worker walking in and out of the Harborview Senior Living Facility without any protective gear. “How hard is it for someone to put a mask on while they run in a building?” said Granai, whose mother lives in the South Burlington nursing home. “I saw the mail delivery happen. And while the mail delivery person was inside, I said goodbye to my mother and I was waiting in my car for the mail delivery person to come out, and asked him, ‘Why no mask?'”
For him, it became personal. He says his concern is not only about the health of his mother, but all of the residents of Harborview. The CDC says older people are at higher risk of contracting COVID-19 and recommends wearing masks as a way to slow the spread. Granai says if that worker won’t, he thinks someone else should do the job.
