The Postal Service has canceled the dedication ceremony for the Fruits and Vegetables stamps, originally scheduled for July 17 in Charleston, WV.
The organization is following social distancing guidance during the coronavirus pandemic.
The stamps will still be available for purchase at Post Offices and usps.com, beginning July 17.
Fruits and Vegetables capture the classic beauty of still-life paintings through 10 portraits. Each stamp will be featured twice in booklets of 20.
The pandemic has also prompted the cancellation of several other USPS events this year, including the dedication ceremonies for the Hip Hop, Enjoy the Great Outdoors, Voices of the Harlem Renaissance, American Gardens, Earth Day, Maine Statehood and Contemporary Boutonniere and Garden Corsage stamps.
