President Donald Trump declared Wednesday a national day of mourning after the death of former President George H.W. Bush.
Federal agencies, including post offices, will be closed.
The U.S. Postal Service will suspend regular mail delivery Wednesday. All post office locations will be closed, and package delivery will be limited. Major U.S. stock markets also will be closed, according to The Associated Press.
“I call on the American people to assemble in their respective places of worship to pay homage to the memory of President George H.W. Bush,” Trump said in a White House statement. “I invite the people of the world ... to join us.”
Bush served as president from 1989 to 1993 and vice president from 1981 to 1989. He died Friday at age 94.
