It appears Canada Post employees are still having problems with dogs while out on their routes.

The organization put out a call in April, reminding Kelowna residents to keep their dogs away from Canada Post carriers if possible, and it did so again on Wednesday.

“Every day our employees deliver to millions of homes across Canada, and an estimated 41% of these households have dogs,” Canada Post said in a press release. “They see them every day when delivering your mail and parcels, especially in these ‘dog days’ of summer and as and most customers—both adults and children—are now home during the day.”

Canada Post is asking people to not open their doors when their employees come to the door. Not only does it increase the risk of dog bites, but it limits the ability to do physical distancing to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
