Given the reality of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is important for you to know that we are taking all the necessary precautions to limit exposure to the virus for the safety of the families we serve, our community, our staff, and our own family members..
Our funeral home provides services to our community similar to first responders. We are available when you need us the most, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our
goal is to ensure that families who have entrusted us to care for their loved ones receive uninterrupted service and attention. Having said that, it is imperative that we do our part in preventing the spread of this dangerous disease. We are taking every precaution to ensure the protection of all.
In spite of the Coronavirus (Covid-19), we will continue to provide limited services.
We can accomplish most necessary arrangements through telephone calls and emails. Family and friends may sign the online memorial register, view tribute videos, or send condolences to the family in the form of cards or flowers through our website as well. We will work with churches and cemeteries to accommodate as many of the family’s wishes as possible.
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.
Arrangement conferences will be limited to 3 family members.
We are suspending public visitations.
Only 50 family members and friends 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.
While this situation continues to evolve, we will adjust our protocol to best protect the families we serve and our staff. We appreciate your patience. For more information about the COVID-19 Virus, please visit the CDC's website at: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html
