As winter and COVID-19 continue, postal workers grow concerned

ALTOONA, Pa. (WTAJ) — With the weather getting colder, a lack of daylight and the Ccoronavirus pandemic continuing to spread, concerns are rising for postal workers.

Altoona Postmaster Michael Olsavsky wants to keep his workers safe.

“The package volume with COVID has increased substantially so our mail carriers are out in the evening hours,” Olsavsky said. “So we’re asking the Altoona residents and actually all of the public to go ahead, have their lights on in the evening if they’re expecting deliveries.”
