Federal buildings nationwide will be closed Wednesday as the nation honors the death of former President George H.W. Bush, who died Nov. 30 at the age of 94.

The White House sent out information about an executive order from the President that provides guidance for the heads of federal agencies to plan for the closure.

Wednesday has been declared a National Day of Mourning and ordered flags at half-staff for 30 days.

Bush will be memorialized in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday, and will be laid to rest Thursday in College Station, Texas.

All post offices will be closed with no mail delivered that day.
