USPS sees more on-time holiday deliveries, despite surge in COVID-19 quarantines

The Postal Service, during its busiest season, is seeing an uptick in COVID-19 quarantines among its workforce. Despite this challenge, USPS data shows the agency provided a significantly higher level of service this year, compared to widespread mail and package delays it saw in December 2020.

USPS data shows it delivered more than 90% of first-class mail on-time so far in the first quarter of fiscal 2022. That’s a significant improvement, compared to the 78.44% of first-class mail delivered on-time for the same period in FY 2021.
