What we at Churchman Funeral Home are doing to comply with Center for Disease Control regulations concerning Covid-19 (Coronavirus)
Currently there are no interruptions in arranging /scheduling services, making interments, or having remains cremated.
Considering the unprecedented global health pandemic we are experiencing, below is some information about what we are doing here at Churchman Funeral Home to ensure the safety of all. This information will be updated regularly so that it contains the most current facts available:
- We are staying abreast of all best practice protocols for viewings, funerals and preparation of the decedents as they are presented to us by state and national funeral service organizations and the Center for Disease Control.
- As always, all “high touch” surface areas in the Funeral Home are cleaned and disinfected regularly before and after services.
- All our staff members have been trained in new Covid-19 protocol and have been informed to stay home from work and seek medical care if they are experiencing any symptoms.
- All guests visiting the funeral home will be offered a hand sanitizing product for immediate one-time use.
- Our rest rooms have been stocked with antibacterial soap, and we have currently transitioned to using disposable paper towels opposed to electric hand dryers.
- On a case by case basis, we are working with families to determine what will best work for them in view of the current crowd limits placed on all gatherings. Contact us or the place of worship where you would potentially hold funeral services for more specific information.
- For your comfort and convenience funeral arrangements can be made remotely via phone or video conference and contracts and forms can be sent electronically, signed, and returned via fax, scan, or e-mail of a clear picture from a mobile phone
