OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – Many U.S. Postal Service workers in Oklahoma City say they are working alongside several people who contracted coronavirus, but a USPS official says there are no confirmed cases among metro Post Office employees.
The KFOR newsroom received several call from Post Office employees who told News 4 that 10 to 13 Oklahoma City Post Office employees have contracted COVID-13.
However, Becky Hernandez, Strategic Communications Specialist for the U.S. Postal Service, said that’s not the case.
Hernandez released the following statement to News 4:
“We have had no confirmed reports of positive COVID-19 cases in this facility. The Postal Service is continuing to monitor the circumstances around the novel coronavirus, also known as ‘COVID-19.’ We are sharing the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) guidance regarding the COVID-19 epidemic to our employees via stand up talks, employee news articles, messages on bulletin boards, and internal messaging inside USPS workplaces.”
There are 13 cases of COVID-19 in the USPS Employee Network, but none of those employees work in Oklahoma City.
