UPDATED: CoVid19 (Corona Virus) Announcement

May 15, 2020 ~ May 15, 2020


UPDATE: CoVid19 Pandemic Mandates for Funeral Homes as set by Governor Andy Beshear and the Kentucky Department of Health.


EFFECTIVE May 20, 2020, funeral homes may increase the numbers permitted for Visitations and Funeral Services.


Please bear with us folks. These are different times we are in and we are trying our best to accommodate your needs and comply with the mandates imposed on us by governing powers. 



The plan requires us to limit the number of people occupying our building to 33% of our building’s capacity.  This means we can begin public visitations again, but only to the extent that people can walk through in limited numbers at a time, maintaining social distancing of six feet. It is recommended that physical contact be avoided, but you may greet the family and then exit the building. Congregating inside and outside the building is discouraged. 


Once you arrive at the funeral home, you will join folks in a line, social distancing enforced, and directed by funeral home staff when you may enter the building.  There will be a register book available, but it will be signed for you by one of our staff to avoid possibly contaminating the pen or the pages of the book.  That same staff member will present you a memorial service folder and will also handle any memorial gift contribution you may wish to make. It is also recommended that attendees please wear a face covering if possible.



The plan also limits us to 33% of our building’s capacity.  We will encourage families to invite 50 – 55 family members and friends to the funeral service.  Again, we will need to practice social distancing in setting up the chapel chairs.  Also, congregating must be avoided, so once you arrive, you will be directed to a seat.



You may attend the graveside portion of the funeral service so long as you maintain social distancing and not congregate after the service.



Maintain six feet of distance and hugging, kissing and handshaking should be avoided.
