As Wednesday is declared a National Day of Mourning to mark the passing of President George H.W. Bush, don’t plan on your mail being delivered.

The U.S. Postal Service is suspending regular mail deliveries that day, after President Donald Trump declared it a federal holiday to honor Bush. USPS retail services and offices will also be closed.

But the Postal Service will still do limited package deliveries, to prevent interruption in its holiday season operations.

Packages from private companies like FedEx and UPS would still arrive as normal. Financial markets and the Supreme Court will also take a day off to honor Bush.

Locally the state, county and local governments are not planning interruptions of hours or services though all flags will be posted to half-staff.
