Residents shouldn't worry about venturing out to their mailboxes this afternoon. 

Canada Post has issued a red delivery service alert for Swift Current.

According to a press release from Canada Post, this service alert means that they are "suspending delivery for the day and not sending our delivery agents out or recalling them."

This alert has been put in place due to inclement weather and freezing rain. 

Canada Post says they encourage customers to clear the ice from their walkways, stairs, and driveways, to ensure safe access to the front door for both their visitors, as well as their mail carriers, when service resumes.

If customers have questions regarding mail delivery, they can contact Canada Post's Customer Service team online at or by telephone at 1-866-607-6301 (TTY: 1-800-267-2797).
