USPS to Cease Operations of COVID Command Center

May 3, 2022 Memorandum (pdf)

During the last 2 years the NPMHU and the USPS negotiated a series of MOUs to address COVID-19 and the impact that it had on all postal employees.  These MOUs included the following:

These MOUs and the Liberal Leave Policy were first negotiated in March 2020 and were extended ten Times (in May/July/September/December-2020, in March/June/September/December-2021, and in February/March-2022) and are scheduled to expire on May 6, 2022.  The NPMHU and the USPS have mutually agreed not to extend the COVID-19 MOUs, and the Postal Service has unilaterally decided not to extend the Liberal Leave Policy.

The USPS also has decided to cease operations of its COVID Command center.  This means that the Postal Service will stop the recording and reporting of COVID-19 cases.  The NPMHU believes that this decision is premature in that COVID-19 numbers and hospitalizations are slowly rising as of early May 2022, and there are many medical experts predicting a summer surge of COVID infections.  The NPMHU will continue to monitor the situation and take any action that may be necessary.
