Coronavirus shuts down mail service for some Greenwich Village residents

Neither snow nor rain, sure — but even the US Postal Service is having trouble persevering when it comes to the coronavirus.

Some Manhattan residents served by a Greenwich Village post office told The Post on Monday that they haven’t received their mail — including medicine and checks — for the past week thanks to the contagion taking out much of the center’s staff.

“I went over on Friday, I walked over there, I’m 86 years old,’’ said Leila Mustachi, who lives about a mile from the post office at 201 Varick St.

“They said a third of their work force is out — a lot are out sick — and they couldn’t tell us anything,’’ she lamented. “They said the mail was sitting around in bins and it hasn’t been sorted, just laying around, and they don’t know when it will be ready.”
