Because We Care..........
Given the reality of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is important to know that we are taking precautions to limit exposure to the coronavirus for the safety of our staff, our family members, the families that we serve and the public.
We will continue operating 24 hours a day, seven days a week and making certain that those entrusted to our care and the families we serve are receiving uninterrupted service and attention. Having said that, it is imperative that we do our part in preventing the spread of this dangerous disease.
We, along with state officials, believe it is important to come together and support each other during the loss of a loved one; thus, the state has decided to continue to allow funeral homes to hold services but it is strongly encouraged to be private for immediate family members. Nationally, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention has recommended that no more than 1o people be in attendance at any public gathering and that you maintain a personal space distance of 6 feet from any individual.
Starting immediately, we are introducing the following revised guidelines, in agreement with ALL LOCAL FUNERAL HOMES, based on the direction of the CDC, State & Local Government, Medical Examiner/Coroner, National and State Funeral Director Association protocols:
Masks are required at all times to enter, and while in our facility.
We are suspending public visitations.
Only 50 people will be permitted for funeral services. This number does not include the clergy or our staff.
We will continue to offer public graveside services, masks and social distancing will be required
If you are in a high-risk group for the COVID-19 virus, please stay home.
If you have a fever, cough, or are not feeling well, please stay home.
We are happy to schedule larger gatherings once this threat has subsided.
We are required to monitor attendance.
Our chapel seating has been rearranged to respect physical distancing recommendations.
We ask that everyone who attends respect physical distancing as recommended.
Facility surfaces are sanitized daily.
When possible, and with the family’s consent, we will livestream the funeral service.
