We are actively monitoring the fluid changes with the COVID-19 situation to ensure a safe place for the families we serve. We are taking proactive measures to prevent the spread of any illnesses.
Given the latest public health updates concerning the Covid-19 Coronavirus outbreak, we want to share with you the steps we are taking to protect you and our staff against the spread of the virus, as well as everyday illnesses such as the common cold and the flu.
- Gathering of statistical information and obituary information will be done over the telephone, email or fax.
- Service arrangements will be made over the telephone.
- In-person meetings will be limited to merchandise selection and obtaining required signatures and will only be scheduled if the family does not have the ability to do this via email.
