COVID HITS HOME


         As of December 10, 2020, Andy Kubat, Chad Beer, and Marty Kroboth have been identified through close contact tracing and have been ordered, by the USPS, to quarantine.  None of us have tested positive or are showing symptoms, but we have been named, under CDC guidelines for contact tracing, as having had close contact with an employee who has tested positive.  As a result, we have been ordered by the USPS Occupational Health Nurse to quarantine and we will not be permitted to return to work until 12/15/2020.  (last contact was on 12/01, so the 14 days would end on 12/15)

        The APWU office has been sanitized.  In the meantime, we will be getting as much work done as possible by working remotely.  We will be in daily contact with the T-2 stewards and will be checking the answering machine multiple times per day.  Please, be patient as we work through this disruption.

        We understand that this makes things more difficult, but we have no say in this matter.  We will do what we can to get keep the lines of communication open.  Please, do what you can to stay safe.  Wash your hand frequently.  Wear gloves and use sanitizer.  Wear your mask.  Encourage coworkers to wear theirs because their mask protects you as well as themselves!
