CURRENT COVID 19 UPDATES
FROM THE NYS HEALTH DEPARTMENT
UPDATED MAY 14, 2020
*Please Read: In-Person Gatherings Still Restricted*
Under the current New York State mandates and guidelines issued by the Governor’s office, the ONLY in-person visitation that can be held for the indefinite future is as follows:
You may have a gathering of the immediate family members at the funeral home for a private viewing/ceremony. The guidance further states the number gathered should be kept to as few as possible while maintaining social distancing mandates.
NO OTHER IN-PERSON GATHERINGS ARE ALLOWED.
The NYS Department of Health issued this guidance on April 10, 2020.
This applies to ALL funeral firms ACROSS the state. We urge you to refrain from placing notices in any publication or online as it creates, at a minimum, confusion and, at worst, an appearance that funeral directors are intentionally disregarding a state issued mandate.
