Commas in conventional uses

  • **A comma separates the last item in a date or in an address from the words that follow it. However, a comma does not separate a month from a day (July 12) or a house number from a street name (41 Jefferson Street).

  • **No punctuation is used between the state abbreviation and the ZIP code
