Post Office Closed
Out of respect for former president George H. W. Bush, the nation’s 41st Commander in Chief, and to honor his vast contributions to the United States during his lifetime, and consistent with the presidential proclamation, the U.S. Postal Service will observe a national day of mourning.
USPS will suspend regular mail delivery and retail service on December 5th. USPS will provide limited package delivery service on that day to ensure that the postal service network remains fluid and USPS does not experience any impacts to its package delivery operations that might negatively affect customers or business partners during the remainder of the busy holiday season.
All Postal Service facilities, including headquarters in Washington, DC, and area and district administrative offices, are included in the national day of mourning. Local managers will advise employees on staffing levels to maintain operations and prepare for the resumption of regular activities on Thursday, December 6th.
Additionally, USPS facilities are required to fly the flag at half-staff through sunset Sunday, December 30th.
