The United States Postal Service will suspend mail delivery on Wednesday to mourn the late President George H.W. Bush. 

Wednesday, Dec. 5 has been designated a National Day of Mourning by President Donald Trump. 

In a statement USPS said: 

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.
