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. 

There will be limited package delivery service on Wednesday to ensure that the USPS network remains fluid and does not experience any impacts to package delivery operations that might negatively affect customers or business partners during the remainder of busy holiday season.
