Surgical mask deliveries prioritised

February 6, 2020

Hongkong Post today said the Air Mail Centre has prioritised the handling of Speedpost items containing surgical masks since the end of the Lunar New Year holidays.


In a statement responding to concerns expressed on social media, Hongkong Post said there is no backlog for such items pending delivery.


Up to now, it has handled and delivered about 10,000 such items, Hongkong Post added.


All inbound mail forwarded to the centre after customs inspection will be processed immediately and delivered without any need to obtain Hongkong Post’s further approval for dispatch.


The department said it will continue to give higher priority for surgical masks and arrange for their delivery in the first instance.
