Decree 10.282 / 2020 - Definition of Public Services and Essential Activities

Newsletter No. 7 – March 23rd, 2020.

Dear customer,

On March 20th, the Presidency of the Republic signed Provisional Measure 926 and Decree 10.282, which aim to guarantee the acquisition of goods, services and supplies for dealing with the public health emergency arising from the new coronavirus. Among other determinations, it regulates essential services that must not be interrupted during the period of fighting the disease.
The measure provides security for public services and essential activities considered important to meet the needs of the population who cannot wait for the end of the pandemic. It still considers those who, if not attended to, endanger the survival, health or safety of Brazilians.
Decree 10,282 ratifies, in its Article 3, Postal Services as essential and further reinforces our commitment to provide the entire population with communication and logistics solutions.
Brazilian Post will maintain services following government guidelines, especially from the Ministry of Health, so that the Brazilian population is not short of supplies, observing the necessary conditions for the provision of postal services with safety for employees and society.

Kind regards,
Business Board
