Last night, Prime Minister Boris Johnson issued new guidelines designed to ensure people stay safe and stay at home during the pandemic.
The new measures signalled the closure of all shops aside from supermarkets, food stores and pharmacies.
Fines will be imposed if Brits flout the rules.
As a result, people are only allowed outside of their homes to fetch food and essential medical supplies and for an hour of daily outdoor exercise.
So where does this leave Royal Mail deliveries and Post Office opening hours?
"Open as usual"
A statement on the Post Office website reveals most branches are "open as normal".
Chief exec Nick Read revealed: "We know how important Post Office branches are to our customers. And we are doing all that we can to keep our branches open so that we can continue to provide our products and services to you and your communities."
@RoyalMail my local post office is closed. How do get I information about where my nearest open post office is?

He added: "At the moment, the majority of our branches are open as usual and our supply chain is running as normal."
Nick continued: "Our priority is to keep our customers, postmasters and colleagues safe and healthy. We have advised everyone working in our branches to practice good hand hygiene and we ask that our customers do the same."
Exercise social distancing
He also stressed the importance of social distancing if you visit a Post Office store.
#Coronavirus is affecting our services and how you use them. We’re working our socks off to do everything we can to help. Here's everything you need to know.

One Twitter user revealed he had been to his local branch only to find it closed and called for a list of store closures to be posted online.
At the moment, the majority of our branches are open as usual and our supply chain is running as normal.
"Wandsworth isn’t open. It’d be good if you could get some info on where is/isn’t open on your website please. This would save everyone unnecessarily wandering around London trying to find a branch we can use," he said.
Further clarity for customers
Further clarity about which Post Office branches are remaining open was posted on Twitter in response to customer comments.
One user asked if their local store would be open and it appears as long as your local branch isn't in "a retail environment that has had to close", you should be okay.
A rep said: "Our counters should be open as normal as long as we are not situated in a retail environment that has had to close."
