BALTIMORE, MD – Weather conditions may make it impossible to collect mail later in the day. The following updates have been provided regarding current mail service as the Maryland area braces for this season’s most severe winter storm:

Post Offices Close Early Due to Winter Storm Jonas January 22, 2016

MAILBOX COLLECTIONS:  Collections of mail from the familiar blue collection boxes, residences, and businesses will be completed by noon.

POST OFFICES: All Post Offices in the Baltimore District that’s comprised of  ZIP Codes beginning with 215 and 217 will be closing at 2 pm. ZIP Codes starting with 210, 211, 212, 216, 218 and 219 will close at 3 p.m. This includes all facilities, including bulk mail acceptance units.

The Postal Service asks that steps and walkways be cleared of snow and ice after the storm so that letter carriers may resume delivery safely and efficiently on Monday. Icy areas should also be salted or sanded.

Curbside mailboxes should be shoveled out enough so that carriers can deliver or collect mail without having to leave or back up their vehicles.  The area near the mailbox should be cleared in a half-moon shape to give the carrier and passing drivers full visibility. 

Letter carriers are instructed to hold mail to addresses where ice and snow are not cleared but they often risk injury trying to provide the best service they can to the customers they serve. Please show them your appreciation by ensuring they are safe when delivering your mail.

If you have any questions regarding mail delivery, you can contact the Postal Service Customer Care Center at 1-800-ASK-USPS (800-275-8777) or visit, at special USPS Service Alerts section found at

You will be provided specific information regarding delivery and retail services in the affected area.

The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products, and services to fund its operations.
