Facts about funerals and COVID-19
We are committed to the health and safety of our community, the families we serve and our dedicated employees. First and foremost, we continue to serve families with loved ones who have passed away from COVID-19 and all related causes. The following is a short list of steps we have taken to ensure the safety of all who attend or work funerals at our chapel.
- We continue to adhere to the directives laid down by U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and local health officials. Please understand that these directives are fluid and changeable.
- All public areas including our chapel, arrangement rooms, reception area, restrooms etc. are sterilized after each event/meeting
- Encouraging social distancing and providing hand sanitizer (when available) per CDC and local authority guidelines
- Providing simple e-sign arrangements for families who have experienced close contact with victims of COVID-19 and any other people unable to meet in person.
- Limiting the number of relatives allowed in arrangement rooms and ensuring everyone wears a mask over both nose and mouth.
- Continuing to monitor and ensure the health and safety of all our employees.
- Requiring anyone – family members or staff – with symptoms to remain home.
CDC guidelines for COVID-19
Three Important Ways to Slow the Spread
- Wear a mask to help stop the spread of COVID-19 to others.
- Stay at least 6 feet (about two arm lengths) from others who don’t live with you, particularly in crowded areas.
- Wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
What to Do If You're Sick
- Stay home except to get medical care. Most people with COVID-19 have mild illness and recover at home without medical care.
- Isolate yourself from other members of your family to prevent spread to them and the people that they may have contact with, like grandparents.
- If you have to leave isolation, wear a mask, stay 6 feet apart from others, wash your hands frequently, and clean all touched surfaces.
- Even if you don’t feel sick, you can spread COVID-19 to others. Be sure that you protect everyone as though they are the most fragile person in your family.
- Get care immediately if you are having emergency warning signs, like trouble breathing, pain or pressure in chest.
