USPS Delivery and Retail Services Suspended Wednesday, Dec. 5

President Donald J. Trump has proclaimed Wednesday, Dec. 5, a national day of mourning to honor the late President George H. W. Bush for his vast contributions to the United States during his lifetime. Consistent with this proclamation, the Postal Service will suspend regular mail delivery and retail service during this National Day of Observance (NDO).

USPS will provide limited package delivery on that day to ensure that service does not experience anything that might negatively affect customers or business partners during the busy holiday season. More information regarding Postal Service operations on the NDO may be found on the USPS website at 

Below is a summary of the effect on city carriers as set forth in the MOU Re: Clarification of Regulations for National Day of Observance on pages 180-183 of the 2016-2019 National Agreement, which may be found here
