Post Office nicknames the pandemic their "second Christmas"


The Moose Lake Post Office is experiencing an immense amount of business during this time of global pandemic crisis—“We have had at least five pallets of packages everyday,” shared an inside employee.

Given the increase in mail and delivery at the Moose Lake postal service, it only makes sense the local USPS workers would compare this time of “stay-at-home orders” and “social-distancing” to that of the Christmas season.

“We’re calling it Covid-Christmas,” informed the employee. “The high volume of mail we’ve been receiving has increased compared to what we’d usually see around this time of year.”

With people all over the world being encouraged to stay home and to interact virtually during this time of uncertainty, it only makes sense more online purchases would be made. It also seems practical to send gifts and cards through mail due to the majority of gatherings and celebrations being cancelled.

As restrictions ease, the Moose Lake Post Office continues to work hard for their local citizens and will continue to practice safe and healthy habits.
