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 coronavirus for the safety of our staff, our family members, the families that we serve and the public.
Our funeral home will continue operating 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to make certain that those families that have entrusted us to care for their loved ones still receive uninterrupted service and attention. Having said that, it is imperative that we do our part in preventing the spread of this dangerous disease.
In light of the recommendations of the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the Ohio Department of Health, and the federal government, we have adopted the following policies for the families we serve:
Funeral services will be strictly private and limited to no more than 50 people in attendance.
No public calling hours will be observed.
We will provide services for large memorial public gatherings at a time when it is deemed safe to do so.
We will be limiting our hours of attendance at the funeral home. As always, our directors and staff are available 24 hours a day, seven day a week to assist you. We are just a telephone call away.
Our funeral home has the technology to livestream and or video record the funeral service of your loved one for those people who are unable to attend a private service can still be a part of it. This is available at no charge. Condolences and memorial tributes can be offered by using our website for every family we serve. If you have any questions about these services do not hesitate to ask.
If you choose to attend a service in the coming months, please know that will be making procedural changes to how we normally conduct services. We ask for your patience and understanding with these changes. We also ask you to do the following: cover your cough or sneeze with your elbow, do not touch your face, nose or mouth with your hands, wash your hands or use hand sanitizer before entering and exiting the funeral home, socially distance yourself from others in the funeral home, refrain from hugging and/or hand shaking, and consider bringing your own pen to sign the family's register book.
Additionally, we plead with you, if you are part of a high-risk group, not feeling well, have a cough or fever, please stay home.
