Cozumel, Q.R. –More than a dozen postal workers were unable to work Tuesday after the municipality suspended activities due to an unsafe work environment.
Municipal Civil Protection closed the building after a piece of the roof collapsed. Civil Protection said that due to the ceiling and roof situation, the building has been determined unsafe for workers and customers.
Suspension seals were placed on the glass doors of the Cozumel post office. The municipal Civil Protection Directorate added that they determined that the building does not have appropriate conditions to guarantee safety inside and so suspension seals were placed at the entrances after employees were evicted.
The post office is expected to resume business once the faulty roof and ceiling are repaired.
