Letter carrier refusing to wear mask is causing important mail for seniors to be delayed
SAN ANTONIO – A postal worker’s alleged refusal to deliver mail is putting disabled and elderly tenants in a tough spot.
The property requires all delivery workers to wear masks and have their temperature taken.
Because the mailman refuses to comply, renters there say their important medication, letters, and packages have been delayed.
“I want my mail delivered and I also want to be safe from COVID-19,” said long-time tenant James Hamilton.
To help keep people safe, the San Antonio Housing Authority wants letter carriers to wear masks when delivering mail at Lewis Chatham Apartments.
The Southside mid-rise is full of elderly and disabled tenants. Some of whom are waiting on medications, medical supplies and monthly checks to be delivered to live and fulfill their financial responsibilities.
