Effective June 15, 2020, New Funeral Home Guidance has been released, based upon recommendations from the
NH Funeral Directors Association and the Governor's Re-Opening Task Force. In addition to continual, thorough facility sanitation
and training for our staff, the following measures are being implemented effective immediately:
Funeral Service attendees should be notified/informed that if they have symptoms of COVID-19, they should NOT attend the funeral services for the protection of other attendees and staff.
Funeral Service attendees should wear face coverings at all times when inside the funeral establishment.
The number of attendees inside a funeral establishment will be limited to 50% or less of an establishment's permitted occupancy
based on New Hampshire's Building & Fire Code.
Any waiting/receiving lines inside and outside will have demarcations spacing attendees at least 6 feet apart.
Seating must be arranged at least 6 feet apart with space to allow people to move through without coming into close contact with others.
Establish one-way traffic patterns to promote social distancing.
Close contact with others (e.g. hugging or hand-shaking) is discouraged. Condolences should be provided from a distance of at least 6 feet.
No food, snacks or drinks are allowed in funeral homes or reception areas.
Visitations will be limited to a period of 2 hours in order to allow for appropriate facility sanitizing and cleaning as prescribed by the CDC.
Our family remains available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to personally respond to your needs. We are committed to responsibly serving our family's needs throughout this challenging time, even as guidelines and directives are updated or changed.
