The United States Postal Service issued a statement on Monday regarding the curtailment of regular mail deliveries on Wednesday, Dec. 5.

Following is the statement:

“President Donald J. Trump has proclaimed Wednesday, Dec. 5, 2018, as a National Day of Mourning in remembrance of former President George H.W. Bush.

Out of respect for the 41st President of the United States and to honor his vast contributions to our country during his lifetime, and consistent with the Presidential Proclamation, the United States Postal Service will suspend regular mail deliveries, retail services and administrative office activity on Dec. 5.

We will provide limited package delivery service on that day to ensure that our network remains fluid and we do not experience any impacts to our package delivery operations that might negatively affect our customers or business partners during the remainder of our busy holiday season.”

The one-day interruption of traditional mail service will mean those subscribers to The Oakdale Leader, The Riverbank News and The Escalon Times who receive their weekly Wednesday publication in the mail will see that delivery delayed by a day.
