The Cayman Islands Postal Service has suspended mail service to the Sister Islands for the remainder of the week. Postmaster General Sheena Glasgow explained that this decision is based on a number of factors:

  • All available air and sea cargo space is currently being used for the transportation of emergency relief cargo.
  • The majority of post offices have been damaged in some way. In addition, all infrastructure services have not yet been restored. At a minimum, secured buildings are required before re-opening post offices.
  • Postal staff on the Brac need some time to address their personal living situations that are connected to damage from Paloma’s passing.
The situation will be reassessed for next week and CIPS will release further updates as needed.
