Coronavirus (COVID-19) FAQ

Click on the questions below to reveal each respective answer.

Great question. We have begun to contact local clergy and community officials to discuss how we can work together in recognizing the threats with COVID-19. Funerals are for the living, and we will be diligent in our response during this pandemic to ensure the well-being of our staff, the families we serve, and the greater community. We are also members of the National Funeral Directors Association. Only a portion of all funeral homes belongs to this association. The NFDA sets standards for the best funeral homes in the country with comprehensive education and resources that are critical in times of concern. This allows these funeral homes to be leaders in times of tragedy and uncertainty.

As for gatherings such as funerals and celebrations of life, we are discussing as a team the best ways we can continue with our funeral and memorial gatherings under the new parameters set by Governor Hogan. As I mentioned, this pandemic response is new to all of us so if you have helpful suggestions, we are more than willing to discuss them. We will have options, including webcasting, posted with more detailed information in the coming days.
