The below-zero weather will keep United States Postal Service‘s operations in Michigan on hold for another day.
A news release from the corporation stated that mail delivery, pick up and collection services will be suspended through Thursday “to ensure the safety and well-being of our employees.”
Post office retail operations will remain open.
“We apologize for any inconvenience this weather related service disruption has caused,” USPS Detroit district manager Karlett Gilbert, said in the release. “The safety and well-being of our employees is of paramount concern to the Postal Service.”

The corporation announced Tuesday of suspending Wednesday’s services. Wednesday’s suspension also affected other Midwest states such as Indiana, Illinois, Ohio, North and South Dakota, Iowa, Wisconsin and Nebraska.
USPS last suspended its regular mail delivery operation for a day last month after President Donald Trump proclaimed Dec. 5, 2018, a national day of mourning in honor of former President George H.W. Bush
