According to the Pennsylvania Department of Health as of April 4th , 2021 the following protocols are now in effect:
The maximum capacity for our facility is limited at this time, and the regulations will be discussed at the time of scheduling a funeral.
Visitors to both indoor and outdoor gatherings are encouraged wear a face covering and practice social distancing at all times.
Churches and other places of worship have their own restrictions and established rules for use of their buildings.
We ask that all visitors to our services please be patient in dealing with these guidelines. When visiting to pay your respects, do so in a timely fashion, stay socially distant, and exit the building without congregating, to allow for other visitors to pay their respects. You are asked to be respectful of other visitors, and avoid congregating on the funeral home grounds.
We encourage families to have private visitations followed by graveside services. Our observations since the begining of the pandemic have shown that the majority of public are very educated to the current state of the situation and very receptive and understanding of these private services.
Our goal is to help the families we serve have a meaningful tribute to their loved one and we will do whatever possible to help during these trying times.
As always, we will continue to deep clean our facility on a regular basis in order to better serve the families who place their trust in our firm.
