The post office will be closed so there will be no mail delivery Monday for the holiday. Those looking to send mail also wont be able to, so anyone looking to mail something should be sure to get to the post office Saturday before it closes, their next chance will be Tuesday.
The Department of Motor Vehicles offices in most states will be closed for the holiday as well. Some offices even closed early on the Friday ahead of Columbus Day.
Schools arent required to close for the holiday, so those wondering whether they should head to the bus stop Monday should check with their specific district about a possible closing. Most public schools will be closed though.

Federal holiday weekend.
Last one until Veterans Day.
stock markets are open - bond markets closed.
Banks and FedGov are about it, around here.
Im sure the SJWs will be scolding us for not observing Indigenous Peoples Day.
Um, I think it’s properly called: “Indigenous People’s Day” - although not sure if that refers to the Native American Indians or the people that were already here but were slaughtered by those soon-to-be Native American Indians....
Last year on Columbus Day my boss gave a little speak about the holiday being close to Canadian Thansgiving and that should remind us that a)we should be thankful to even have a job and b)we should be thankful that we get a day off in about a month on American Thanksgiving.
Correct on both points in the technical sense, but neither well-received at 7:50am on a Monday.
Every day is “hate whitey day” on campus.
There are no indigenous peoples - just an argument over when you ancestors got here.
Columbus Day? Please, the preferred nomenclature is Indigenous Peoples Day. You must be a homophobic, misogynistic racist.
Saturday, October 6, Brett Kavanaugh is confirmed. Liberals melt down.
Sunday, October 7, anniversary of How the 1571 Battle of Lepanto saved Europe . Muslims and liberals melt down at any mention of it.
Monday, October 8, Columbus Day. More liberal melt downs.
A great 3 day weekend.
I always laugh when that one comes around. All the real veterans in the private sector still have to work while only the govt. employees get the day off.......what a crock.
The Left doesn’t care about the indigenous peoples of Europe.
YES! Finally I'm a "victim"....
Its also Thanksgiving Day in Canada. Thankful for many blessings.
Trading on NYSE open but not settlement day. Trading will be very light. Banks closed. USG closed which is not all bad.
I have learned the language of the Indians:
I thought it was obvious, but I wrote that with huge doses of sarcasm. And yes, I agree.
I celebrate Columbus Day, NOT Stone Age Savages Day.
Thought Canada outlawed God?
Thank you, Christopher, for finding this place. It’s much better now that you brought Europeans here to civilize it.
