Default Quarantine delivery still up! How are you doing?

So I live in the suburban outskirts of Philly PA, and were in a huge quarantine right now, probably most of you guys are too. I was wondering if your postal service areas are still up, or if they closed down. Because getting sweet new models for the collection is top priority!

I'd have thought staying safe was the priority

I can see an 'essential mail' only policy being adopted soon though. There was certainly an article in The Guardian newspaper in the UK the other day in which mail union bosses complained about the amount of junk mail still being sent out and about the huge increase of people at home 'just ordering stuff out of boredom'. It's already crossed my mind whether or not diecast models are strictly necessary just now, especially as infections gain momentum and mail workers get sick.

As things stand, my postman won't allow me to sign for packages and hands things over at full arm's length or just shouts through the door to tell me to pick up off the steps.

There's also the lockdown issue and does (for example) a model store employee or a private seller on eBay, still have permission, either legally or morally, to leave work or home to take your package to the post office for shipping ?

in my hometown WORTHING only 3 post offices are open. rest are closed due to lack of staff off sick or isolating. my wife's one is open atm, but as she has asthma she is off 12 weeks! so are doing reduced hours. 11 am till 5 pm. 9-12.30 Saturdays. only 1 person allowed to work, as only small sub post office and can't keep 2 metre distance between staff. so deliveries still being made, and other couriers atm.

So far the postal service is still operating (Canada Post). We aren't in quarantine but then again we have less people living in our borders lol

I've stopped ordering models, and stopped selling old ones on ebay. I don't think they're essential things to be sent at the mo, plus I'm trying to minimise contact with anyone so if I have to go out the Post Office isn't a priority.
