BECKLEY, WV (WVNS) — The unsung heroes deliver medication, send cards to loved ones, and bring your much needed amazon orders to your doorsteps. Postal workers are still working around the clock to get community members their mail.

But their everyday routine puts them at risk for getting the COVID-19 virus. That is why the United States Postal Service is taking steps to keep their workers safe.

Inside the Beckley store, sneeze guards were installed and the clerks are wearing gloves.

They are also taking steps to keep the community safe. In their stores, they are asking customers to stand six feet apart in line and they only allow 10 people in the lobby at one time.
