The U.S. Postal Service announced Monday it will suspend regular mail delivery Wednesday, which has been declared a national day of mourning for 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," the service stated on its website.

The Postal Service said it would, however, be doing "limited" package delivery.

President Donald Trump, who will attend the funeral service in Washington National Cathedral, has already ordered the federal government closed Wednesday.

Bush died Friday at his home in Houston last Friday.
