Due to evacuations and road closures from the Tea Fire, certain post offices are reporting that they will be unable to deliver mail today. The Montecito Branch Post Office, located at 1470 East Valley Rd., is located in a mandatory evacuation area and is therefore closed.

If you do not receive your mail today, you may be able to pick it up at one of two offices, depending on your zip code. Those having the codes 93103, 93108, 93150 can check the East Beach Station at 107 Nopalitos Way. Those from the 93105 zip code can go to the San Roque Station at 3345 State St.

Mail processing is not affected in Goleta, or any other zip codes not mentioned above. Valid identification is required to pick up mail in person. For more information about service updates and where to pick up mail, call 1-800-ASK-USPS.

Letter carriers will be delivering mail when it is safe and will be doing so while equipped with face masks.
