Changes to Operations – March 20, 2020
In order to promote social distancing and to prevent the mail room staff from being exposed to, or potentially exposing others to COVID-19 if they become infected, the following operational strategy will be put in place the following changes will be implemented effective immediately:
The Mail Center will remain open, but the door will be locked. A sign will be put on the door that indicates this change.
Daily Mail Delivery
Daily delivery of mail to individual departments will cease, except for those limited student facing departments (see below). In order to support business continuity, departments are to have a representative pick up mail at the warehouse between 8 a.m. – 3 p.m., for the entire department. When the department representative arrives they will be asked to indicate their name, what department’s mail and packages (if small enough to carry) they are there to pick up. They then will be asked to retrieve the mail from the appropriate bin.
Sending Campus and USPS Mail
Outgoing department mail can be brought to the Mail Center at any time and put in the bin located outside of the main entrance of the Mail Center.
Outgoing mail that needs to be metered and sent to the post office needs to be bundled with a rubber band and have one of the pink mailroom department cards or a post-it note attached to it with the account number to charge. Before departing, please knock on the door to ensure mail room staff are aware of the drop off.
Sending UPS and DHL Mail
If a department has a package that needs to be sent via UPS or DHL, a clearly addressed package and a post-it note with the account number to be charged needs to be attached. The package should be brought to the mail center and the representative should knock on the door, receive acknowledgement from the mail center staff and then leave the package outside the door.
All mail that has not been picked up will be stored in the warehouse (518-564-5026) for future pick up.
The Mail Center and warehouse staff are here for the campus. If you have any questions please contact us at 518-564-2057
