In trying to get ahead of the curve, has implemented some temporary measures to try to comply with current State and Federal recommendations. Through the end of March, social gatherings, including Funerals & Memorial Services are to be limited in size. Hopefully, by being proactive, we can slow the spread of COVID-19 in our community. Therefore, we are implementing the following guidelines.
1. Funerals and Memorial Services will be limited to immediate family only. We will do our best to help each family, including planning a later celebration of life open to the public after the virus in under control. There will be no additional charge for later services taking place M-F, during normal hours.
2. Arrangement meetings to plan for services will be limited in size. No more than 2-3 family members may come to our offices after a death to plan services. Making arrangements takes place in close quarters, and the fewer people exposed to each other, the better. We will work with each family to handle arrangements in the best way possible, including possible use of email, phone, and text.
3. We are requesting anyone with any minor symptoms at all (sore throat, tickle in throat, cough, sneezing, fever), not come to either of our facilities or services. We are often in contact with elderly & persons with compromised immune systems.
4. We would appreciate persons not needing essential services, visit our funeral home after April 1st. This would include pre-arrangement of funerals (unless necessary for Medicaid spend down), and monument sales.
Caring for local families is very important to us, and that extends to the entire community. If we all can maintain this recommended social distancing, hopefully we can stop the spread of this virulent virus. Prayers and love to you all.
