The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, in solidarity with the federal government, has declared Wednesday a day of mourning to honor President George H. W. Bush.
President Donald Trump declared the day as a National Day of Mourning.
All “non-emergency or non-essential” county offices and agencies will be closed.
Courts will remain open, as will emergency services such as hospitals and sheriff’s stations, but other offices and services will operate at the discretion of department heads, according to a county spokesman.
The U.S. Post Office will also close all locations and suspend regular mail delivery. Package delivery will be limited, according to USPS.
All federal offices, federal courts and Social Security offices will be closed for the day.
Long Beach city services will all remain open, according to a spokesman.
“The city respects that there is a National Day of Mourning honoring President George H.W. Bush, however the city will remain open,” Kevin Lee said in an email.
Long Beach Unified School District, Long Beach City College and Cal State Long Beach will all remain open on Wednesday.
