We are implementing the Centers of Disease Control (CDC) recommendation of only allowing 10 people at a gathering at any time. This includes funeral services, gravesides and all visitations. The CDC recommends that all in-person public gatherings of more than 10 people be postpone or cancelled for the next eight weeks. While we acknowledge the importance for public gatherings to honor the lives of loved ones, the CDC believes control of such public gatherings is one of the most significant resources that may slow the spread and impact of this pandemic.
We wish to continue to serve within these guidelines.
