From our delivery partners:

UPS notes that they have currently suspended their Service Guarantee and asks that you ensure your delivery address is open and receiving packages.

The UPS Service Guarantee is suspended for all shipments from any origin to any destination. Gaps in tracking check-ins and delays to destination are very common at this time, please allow extra time for delivery.

USPS  has so far experienced only minor operational impacts in the United States. However, they do continue to have a temporary suspension of the guarantee on Priority Mail Express International destined for China and Hong Kong. Customers may see delays in mail and packages destined to China, as well as to European countries subject to restricted passenger airline travel. The US Postal Service is an essential service, though, and is undertaking all reasonable measures to minimize the impact of COVID-19. Updated December 2020: USPS is experiencing unprecedented delays due to volume and Covid-19 parameters. Service guarantees do not apply at this time. Gaps in tracking check-ins and delays to destination are very common at this time, please allow extra time for delivery.
