USPS Suspending Deliveries Wednesday
If you're expecting packages to arrive tomorrow, you'll be waiting a little longer. The United States Postal Service has announced that they will be suspending regular mail deliveries around the country on Wednesday "as part of the national day of mourning for the late former President George H.W. Bush."
According to New York Daily News, USPS had the following statement:
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.
Some package deliveries will still be carried out to ensure that their "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 federal government will also be closed tomorrow (12/5) to honor the former presidents who passed away last Friday.
The 41st president will be memorialized at the National Cathedral tomorrow morning in Washington D.C., then be transported to Texas where he will be laid to rest.
