The Nova Poshta group of companies has canceled the mail storage fee for clients from March 18, 2020 until the end of the quarantine on April 3, according to a statement on its website. “Nova Poshta will store clients’ packages free of charge until the end of the quarantine. We understand that in the current situation our clients may be unable to collect their mail timely,” the company said.
Nova Poshta continues to work and provide services in full.
“The entire chain of our delivery services works – offices, terminals, couriers, automated parcel lockers. Cargo transportation is carried out without restrictions. In addition, international delivery service operates in an ordinary course,” the company said.
All offices of Nova Poshta are supplied with disinfectors, protective masks and gloves. All surfaces in offices are regularly cleaned with disinfectants.
“We control the distance in queues and prevent gathering of crowds of people. Our employees undergo primary examination and are not admitted to work if they feel worse,” Nova Poshta said.
As reported, Nova Poshta temporarily closed offices in shopping and entertainment centers in several cities due to quarantine measures and continues to work in a normal mode.
The draft law “On priority decisions related to the prevention, prophylaxis and elimination of the COVID-19 coronavirus, other infectious diseases associated with it, as well as crisis response measures to prevent the spread of the epidemic” provides a clear algorithm for forced isolation and self-isolation, as well as liability for non-compliance with quarantine.
Minister of Health of Ukraine Illia Yemets presented the bill on Friday to MPs and representatives of relevant departments at a meeting of the working group under the Verkhovna Rada Committee on National Health, Medical Assistance and Medical Insurance to draft legislative proposals aimed at preventing the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus in Ukraine.
The bill also provides for the simplification of the procurement of goods, works and services to prevent and combat coronavirus, which will speed up the process of purchasing personal protective equipment and test systems; the ability to work remotely; a ban on holding mass events with more than 200 people; a ban on conducting state surveillance and control measures during the implementation of measures related to the prevention and control of coronavirus; strengthening control of entry and exit to the territory of Ukraine.
According to the press service of the Ministry of Health, deputies supported the initiative and made several amendments to it.
