(BIVN) – Wednesday, December 5, has been designated a National Day of Mourning to honor the passing of the 41st president of the United States, George H.W. Bush. Most federal offices are closed, including post offices (there will be no regular mail delivery, and package delivery will be limited). However, most of Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park will be open.
On Tuesday, the National Park Service issued an advisory, saying that Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park’s main unit will be open to visitors, but the park will not collect fees. The Kahuku Unit will be closed. The post office in the park will also be closed.
Flags inside the park will be flown at half-staff until December 30, officials say.
