Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says there is no tolerance for those flouting orders to socially distance from others in an effort to limit the spread of the novel coronavirus. “You all think you’re invincible. You’re not. Enough is enough,” he warned in an address to Canadians on Monday from Rideau Cottage, where he is currently in self-isolation – Mar 23, 2020

Canada Post announced Monday that it’s making some changes amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Post offices across the nation are reducing hours — opening an hour later and closing an hour early — so that staff can do a thorough clean and re-stock.

The first hour of each day will be dedicated to seniors and those with compromised immune systems.

Some offices may shut because of overall building closures, and smaller offices may need to limit the number of people inside at one time.

Canada Post will continue to accept cash payments, but is encouraging customers to use credit or debit cards to “tap” at the point-of-sale machine.

A signature for deliveries is also no longer required. Letter carriers will knock or ring at a home, determine a safe place to leave the package, and leave.
