America is still mourning the loss of former President George H.W. Bush. The US Postal Service made a statement that they won't be delivering packages on Wednesday as part of a national day of mourning for the former President.
The agency released this statement on their website:
“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.”
President Trump ordered all federal government agencies closed on Wednesday to honor the 41st President.
