    at the moment it is no longer possible to sent letters and packages from out of Europe to my country because of the Corona Virus. I will keep you updates when this will change.

    casivonmir, do you think you might need to reschedule the swap? Maybe cancel and relaunch?

    I'm thinking about what to do, maybe I can change the date to the end of may or even june. I know artbymee has already sent her cards so I would rather not cancel.

    any thoughts?

    My local post office is shut and I was actually going to drop out of the trade because I don't know how long it will be. If you repost at a later date I'll sign up again.

    I'm in the USA so it looks like mail won't reach you since I'm not in Europe and I see that one of the Canadian players says that her post office is closed.

    I'm going to have to withdraw since I don't see any way to get cards to you in time.

    The only place mail is not up and running at is Hong Kong. That's it.

    I see no reason to drop this swap. according to the documents and statements on this website, as of march 19th, the postal service should still be running smoothly. Mail is usually sent out with commuter flights so there could be delays, but there's no reason to believe the mail will be totally shut down. Worse case scenario, I see them programing flights just for mail transport. there's also no evidence that corona viruses can survive when left in your mailbox without life support for a day.

    I will still be making my bug cards on the currently projected schedule and will hold onto them in case mass demand requests a reschedule.

    snager, it appears that our hostess posted in an earlier post that her country is not accepting mail from outside of Europe and she also said that she's trying to figure out what to do.

    Hey everyone, I'm going to close this swap and reopen it when things settle down. I really hope that everybody will return to this swap when I open it up again, I love insects and was really looking forward to it

    Snaper, I'm not in the USA and my country suspended almost all flights, the cargo flights are reserved for essential things, below you can find a translation from the site of the national post service.


    International

    Due to the decreasing number of flights and the reduced capacity of the flights, bpost - like other postal operators - is temporarily unable to send mail and parcels to destinations outside Europe. We are currently forced to invoke a situation of force majeure. We will immediately stop accepting letters, parcels and EMS shipments destined for countries outside Europe. This will remain so until there is again sufficient transport capacity.

    In concrete terms, this means that you can drop off parcels and letters for the following destinations:
    Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom, Switzerland, Norway and Russia.

    For all the other countries the situation is still unclear. We are looking for a solution.

    Thank you for letting us know. I look forward to joining again when you reopen. Perhaps, if possible, you could message those of us on the list.

    Please take good care of yourself. This won't last forever!
