- About Us
Everyone at the Eberhardt-Stevenson Funeral Home & Crematory remains committed and prepared to safely care for the families we serve during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Whenever possible, we will continue to enable families to participate in the arrangements that are most important to them for their loved ones.
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. At this time, the statewide ban on public gatherings of over 10 people will be observed, but we will work with families to find the option that will best suit their needs. Depending on a family’s preferences, their loved one can be safely embalmed. Families may choose either burial or cremation as usual.
Andy, Jamie, and I are committed to cleaning our facilities and ensuring we’re all following the current recommended guidelines, 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.
As a member of the National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA), the Eberhardt-Stevenson Funeral Home & Crematory receives updated 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. We will continue to stay up to date as conditions change moving forward.
