Information About COVID-19 & Funeral Services

FEMA COVID REIMBURSEMENT

Dear Valued Member of our Family & Community,

 

Please note some new policies in place for our chapels beginning August 11, 2021

Due to the new recommendations by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the City of Philadelphia, all funeral attendees and anyone entering the buildings at both 6410 N Broad Street and 310 2nd Street Pike, will be required to wear a mask regardless of vaccination status.

 

In addition, we will only be allowing 6 people in a limousine and all will be required to wear masks.

 

Thank you for your cooperation.

 

Please note, all policies and procedures are subject to change. Thank you for your patience during this time and flexibility as we continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation in our area and keep our customers and staff safe.

Grieving alone & together a guide for COVID-19

We recommend that you take the following preventative actions:

  • If you are sick or have been in close contact with someone who has been to a foreign country or has been sick, please stay home.
  • Limit the number of people who attend the shiva and ensure that everyone wears masks and practices social distancing. Condolences can also be sent via social media, text, or a phone call.
  • We highly recommend that the elderly and those with chronic illnesses avoid all funerals and shiva until which time the COVID-19 pandemic has passed.
  • Watch the funeral via our live stream application (if applicable) – the link can be provided by the family.
  • Avoid hugging, kissing, or even shaking hands with others.
  • Wear masks and employ “social distancing” in your everyday life.

Our intention is to provide you and your loved ones with the funeral services you require while managing to keep all of you safe. We have reviewed information from local and federal sources, including the CDC, The City of Philadelphia, and the National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA), and will continue to monitor the situation as changes arise.

From our family to yours, thank you for your business and understanding.

If you have questions or are unsure of any of the procedures, please call us at 215-927-5800 and we will be happy to discuss arrangements.
