Royal Mail confirms 'a number' of employees at Lincoln delivery office are self-isolating

Royal Mail has confirmed a number of staff members who work at the delivery office in Lincoln are currently self-isolating.

The postal service confirmed there have been three confirmed cases at the site in total.

In November 2020, the service confirmed their first positive case of coronavirus at the office - meaning there have been a further two cases since then.

The service says there have only been three confirmed cases since the beginning of the pandemic.

A member of staff contacted Lincolnshire Live to raise concerns over the number of people self-isolating.

Royal Mail has confirmed a number of people are self-isolating after being contacted through test and trace, but said it could possibly be from external sources.

A spokesperson for Royal Mail said: "Throughout this crisis, every decision we make puts the health of our people and customers first. We have put in place a range of preventive measures to protect both our customers and our colleagues.

"We were the first UK company to put in place social-distancing measures in relation to parcel delivery. We pioneered contact-free delivery.

"We are temporarily not handing over our hand-held devices to customers to capture signatures.

"As well as encouraging good hand hygiene, standard ways of working have been revised to ensure that colleagues maintain appropriate social distancing at all times.

"All staff have been briefed about the social distancing measures jointly agreed upon by local management and the CWU. This has been supplemented with visible reminders such as posters and one-way floor markings."
