(WCMH) – The US Postal Service is suspending mail delivery Wednesday as part of the federal government’s national day of mourning for George H.W. Bush.

USPS posted:

President Donald J. Trump has proclaimed Wednesday, Dec. 5, 2018, as a National Day of Mourning in remembrance of former President George H.W. Bush.

Out of respect for the 41st President of the United States and to honor his vast contributions to our country during his lifetime, and consistent with the Presidential Proclamation, the United States Postal Service will suspend regular mail deliveries, retail services and administrative office activity on Dec.  5.

We will provide limited package delivery service on that day to ensure that our network remains fluid and we do not experience any impacts to our package delivery operations that might negatively affect our customers or business partners during the remainder of our busy holiday season.

The postal service isn’t the only government office closing Wednesday. With exceptions for reasons of national security, defense or other public need, all federal offices and buildings will be closed.
