Facilities Operations Update

Holiday Closing Notice from Mail and Receiving Services

Please be conscious when placing perishable orders for delivery during the Christmas and New Year Holidays.

The WUSM and Danforth Receiving docks will be closed the following days:

Friday, December 23, 2022
Monday, December 26, 2022
Friday, December 30, 2022
Monday, January 2, 2023

Most delivery services will be open and making deliveries to businesses on Friday, December 23 and Friday, December 30. FedEx, UPS, and the other delivery services know that WUSM and Danforth docks will be closed and will not attempt to deliver to our docks when they are closed. Delivery services have no way of storing perishables over that time.

It is very important that labs not place orders for perishables to be delivered on days that the docks are closed.
