Funerals: COVID-19

Losing a family member or a friend is never easy, and because of the coronavirus outbreak it’s becoming more challenging.

Limits are being placed on gatherings.

The CDC is recommending a gathering of no more than 10 people, meaning funeral homes are having to rethink how many people can be in attendance.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Steve Tiffany, the manager of the Usher Funeral Home in Indianapolis, says they’ve had to make a few changes to better protect the families they serve and their staff.

Funeral services at his facility, church, or cemetery can’t exceed 10 to 12 people, the same goes for visitations at their funeral home.

They are working to give people online access to funeral services, and guests can sign an online register book and leave their condolences.
