USPS Domestic Disruptions - Service Alerts

USPS Service Status on Domestic Services and Shipments – Updated 1/16/2023

Here is our list of known disruptions and suspensions of USPS domestic services based on information the Postal Service provides to the public and in Industry alerts.

We may also include problems reported in the media if they significantly impact Postal Service operations in an area. This often includes weather or natural disaster-related disruptions.

For the purpose of this information, we consider “domestic” to include shipments in the contiguous United States, as well as destined to Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, Guam, and any other US territory.

Also, military and diplomatic mail disruptions will be included, if USPS is made aware of issues. The Postal Service does not actually deliver the mail outside the US once handed over to the military for international transport.

This information was last updated on 1/16/2023.

Impact of Covid-19 on USPS

During the height of the Covid pandemic, USPS operations were severely affected by workers calling in sick and social distancing measures at sorting and retail facilities.

Since then, operations have largely returned to normal with no known widespread reported disruptions in the USPS network affecting mail and package deliveries.

USPS Domestic Service and Facility Disruptions

Evacuations have been ordered or strongly suggested in parts of Northern California due to severe storms and flooding. USPS issued a number of closure and suspension orders for retail offices (see below). This is an ongoing situation and is likely to change rapidly.
