With the current COVID-19 health crisis occurring at this time, we want to let you know that our funeral home remains operating as usual, with certain safety precautions as advised by the CDC. We will continue to serve families and the community in a respectful and dignified manner.
We are regularly receiving information via the New York State Funeral Director’s Association (NYSFDA) & the National Funeral Director’s Association (NFDA) from the CDC, Department of Health and Human Services and other agencies about the evolution of COVID-19 in the United States. NFDA continues to lead the conversation with federal officials about the role of funeral service as it relates to the COVID-19 pandemic.
We will continue to guide families, as we always have, in ways they can meaningfully and safely commemorate the life of their loved one, while adhering to the guidance issued by federal, state and local public health officials. The health and safety of the families we serve, our employees and the community is of utmost importance.
With the permission of the families we are serving, we will look into using technological options to allow services to be shared, if needed. Feel free to contact us for further discussion. We also have our website set up if you want to leave a message of condolence for families.
Our staff remains vigilant about cleaning our facilities and ensuring we’re all following recommended healthy habits, such as staying home when sick, washing our hands, and covering coughs and sneezes. The CDC and our local public health officials have offered a lot of helpful guidance for businesses on this topic, which we continue to follow.
