To Our Families
Informational Bulletin on Funerals and COVID-19
March 23, 2020
Due to the current situation with COVID-19, we want to express our main priority at the Reid Funeral Service and Chapel is the safety of our staff, families and taking care of their loved ones that have passed away.
On March 23, 2020, the CDC recommended that all gatherings be limited, including funerals, graveside and memorial events that we handle at our facilities and other locations.
We will be working with families on an individual basis to help them during this difficult time and honor their wishes as best as we can. Families may still choose either burial or cremation (even those confirmed or suspected of COVID-19). Funerals, graveside, and memorial services can still be conducted with respect to the limited person limit (most likely immediate family) if a family so chooses. Otherwise, family has the option of holding services at a later date.
We are currently only seeing the public by appointment only. This will allow us to sanitize our facilities between appointments.
We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause. Please know we are acting in response to the recommendations being handed down to us at a national and state level and we want to make sure the families we serve are protected. If you have any questions or concerns, please give us a call at (906)-524-6824. We are available to answer your questions.
