Walter Funeral Home, Prepared to Safely Care For Families During the COVID-19 Pandemic
Walter Funeral Home remains committed and prepared to safely care for the families it serves during the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Whenever possible, Walter Funeral Home will continue to enable families to participate in the traditions that are most important to them.
According to the CDC, at this time, there is no known risk associated with being in the same room at a funeral or visitation service with the body of someone who died of confirmed or suspected COVID-19; however, federal, state and local public health guidance may impact the size of gathering a family is able to plan. Depending on a family’s preferences, their loved one can be safely embalmed. Families may chose either burial or cremation as usual.
At Walter Funeral Home, we recognize our responsibility to protect the health of those we are privileged to serve. We will continue to guide families, as we always have, in ways they can meaningfully commemorate the life of their loved one, while adhering to the guidance issued by federal, state and local public health officials.
Our staff remains vigilant about cleaning our facilities and ensuring we’re all following recommended healthy habits, such as staying home when sick, washing our hands, and covering coughs and sneezes. The CDC and our state and local public health officials have offered a lot of helpful guidance for businesses on this topic, which we continue to follow.
We encourage families with questions to contact our office by phone. We ask you to please avoid just stopping by and avoid non-appointment ”walk ins.” We have many options to communicate with you other than face to face contact. This is to protect your family and our staff and families.
A member of the National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA), Walter Funeral Home regularly receives information via NFDA from the CDC, Department of Health and Human Services and other agencies about the evolution of COVID-19 in the United States. NFDA continues to lead the conversation with federal officials about the role of funeral service as it relates to the COVID-19 pandemic.
If the staff of Walter Funeral Home can be of assistance, please contact us at 419-382-1700 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Michael Johnson and P. Eric Mathewson
