Postal Services St Maarten (PSS NV) informs of its first COVID-19 positive employee

The management of the Postal Services Sint Maarten (PSS N.V.) was informed earlier this morning Tuesday, August 25, 2020, that one (1) employee has been tested positive for COVID-19.
The employee, who is currently abroad and obtaining the necessary medical attention, was last present at the workplace on Wednesday, August 19, 2020, and was not showing any symptoms at the time.
Considering the remote working conditions of the PSS offices and the health and safety of our employees being a top priority, management has decided to close its operations effective today Tuesday, August 25, 2020, for two weeks to take prompt measures (incl. fumigation and deep cleaning of all offices) to mitigate the spread of the virus.
PSS N.V. has been taking all the proactive steps to reduce the risk of infections among its employees. These steps have included increasing the frequency of cleaning of the offices, amenities and service areas, heightened hygiene practices (washing of hands), encouraging social distancing, and underscoring the need to remain at home when feeling ill.
The public will be updated in a subsequent press release about the resumption of services and related developments. For urgent matters, please send an email to
Our best wishes go to the employee for a full recovery.
