According to the FedEx 2020 Holiday Service Schedule, FedEx is not delivering Labor Day Monday, September 7, 2020. Some FedEx offices will be open with modified hours.

Along with other businesses around the globe, FedEx is modifying its services to help keep its customers and employees safe, and to help stop the spread of the coronavirus. Among those changes are suspending their money-back guarantees and suspending signature requirements.
“The COVID-19 (i.e., coronavirus) outbreak has disrupted supply chains around the world. FedEx continues to operate in impacted areas as local conditions and restrictions allow,” FedEx said on its website.
FedEx is also requiring its employees to wear face coverings, and asking their customers to wear masks in their stores. They are also offering special shopping hours at many locations for people who are over 60 or who have special physical or health needs.
“In times of need, our FedEx Cares team supports nonprofits with mission-critical demands,” the FedEx website said. “Since the pandemic began, we have provided delivery of personal protective equipment and critical supplies to organizations around the world.”
You can also sign up for service disruption notifications so that any new information can be delivered straight to your inbox. To sign up for notifications, just enter your email address here.
“Email is a great way to get our latest offers and to learn about key products and services that make shipping and printing easier,” the website says.
