**NEW FUNERAL HOME GUIDANCE**


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.
