-In accordance to the Parameters set forth in Phase 2 of COVID 19 by the State of Connecitcut, a maximum number of 43 persons are permitted inside our facility at the same time and any persons above that permitted amount will not be granted access until those friends which have entered the facility prior to the maximum reached, safely exit allowing the same number of guests that exit, to come inside. Again, the maximum number of persons, family , friends, acquaintances, elderly etc. cannot and will not exceed 43. Please understand, our efforts will entail announcing when a line is outside and people have not exited so that those inside can consider those outside in line. We can only encourage others that are NOT immediate family to kindly go outside, therefore permitting those patiently in line to exit enter the funeral home masks are ABSOLUTELY REQUIRED.
-Entrance is granted into our facility for those who exhibit a mask which covers their MOUTH AND NOSE and such mask MUST REMAIN ON CORRECTLY during entire visit. We regret to inform all guests that regardless of relationship to deceased and/ or family member, such safety measures are not up for debate, nor negotiable by our firm and we cannot compromise the integrity of the safety measures set forth by exceeding the alotted numbers or excuse anyone for not utilizing the required face coverings.
-HUGGING AND /OR KISSING any member of the immediate family and/or friends is strongly discouraged, but be advised the Funeral Home, its representatives and or staff members assisting throughout the services cannot and will not assume any responsibility for anyone becoming exposed due to them not adhering to the rules and regulations set forth while inside our facility nor in the funeral services for such deceased in their entirety.
Please remember everyone, we understand the trialing time our country, state and city have encountered. Therefore, we are requesting anyone whom is considering attending a service which may be held by our firm in our facility to adhere to the rules and regulations set forth of such policies and procedures . Nobody has any other intention and/ or reason but to protect the health and well being of us all and any interaction other than that of ladies and gentlemen and as such expect the same treatment and interaction in return. Any other method and/or interaction is not acceptable nor will be tolerated. That is our exclusive purpose if we have to bring something to someone's attention regarding such procedures not being adhered to. We do not know many, relationships etc. nor is our staff aware of relationships, nor are part of what our intended purpose is by having to address anything inside or outside but in the same fashion. We want you to go home, the same way you have arrived, healthy and well!
Nobody within our firm will ask anyone to do something to be spiteful, nor be mean or intrusive, etc. yet we request that any interaction between all staff and Directors will be assertively addressed and although excuses as to why any lack of adherence to policies and procedures set forth for everyone's health and well being and in conjunction to state laws. If cooperation is not provided upon request, you may be asked to leave our facility immediately and entrance will no longer be granted. Again, not meant to be mean or rude, yet such actions are meant to try to correct and/or prevent a possible exposure from occurring that may cost the life of someone with a delicate health condition whether it be towards yourself or another person.
Everyone has the right to their opinion and do as they wish, but just like we all must have a level of decorum when at certain places, functions and public locations, adherence to such policies is required wherever we go, , We strive to make this a seamless process but of course, it is only with the full cooperation of everyone in attendance to follow instructions thus facilitating and making this process one of least involvement of any family member due to non compliance of such rules and regulations by any guest or distant family member. Above all, the least possible stress to a family handling one of the most challenging times ever in their lives.
We thank you in advance for your patience and everyone's cooperation. Always remember safety is our #1 concern. Your health and safety while in our facility or being part of a service we are conducting is not something are willing to compromise on, and therefore, we not only focus on everyone's safety but your entire well being by creating and maintaining a safe atmosphere in its entirety.
Our facility is cleaned and disinfected after each and every service time, our entire facility, even further providing UV light air filtration system on each floor. Again, safety and well being is not a negotiable topic and therefore we strictly abide not only by the regulations imposed by the governing agencies, but take it always a step above, because you deserve that and so much more.
