Due to Wednesday, October 5, being a national day of mourning following the death of former President George H.W. Bush, U.S. Postal Service offices will be closed and deliveries will be limited. Also closed will be the New York Stock Exchange and Nasdaq.
Federal employees will not be required to report for work unless “essential to national security and other vital government services.”
Most area banks and city and county offices will be open, but call first to make sure.
The last day that a national day of mourning took place was January 2, 2007, on the day of former President Gerald Ford’s funeral.
