  • Local Links and Resources

  • Prearrangement Information and more



You can even sign an electronic guestbook and print out a memorial card of a friend or family member.



MASK REQUIREMENT



Although Governor Mike DeWine has required face masks to be worn at all times while inside a funeral home, some individuals may not be able to wear a mask due to a medical condition.  If this is the case, the funeral home requires those individuals to complete a mask exemption form upon entering the facility.  Forms are available at the door of the funeral home or can be found on our Facebook page where it can be printed, completed and presented to the attendant upon entering the funeral home.



UPDATED RECOMMENDATION 05.27.2020



Ohio Funeral Directors Association Urges Member Funeral Homes to Follow Best Practices in Response to COVID-19Pandemic



The Ohio Funeral Directors Association (OFDA) remains committed to providing our membership with resources that ensure the health and well-being of funeral professionals, as well as the families they compassionately serve. A safe environment to work and gather in is vital to limiting the spread of COVID-19 among staff and the public. As Governor DeWine and the Ohio Department of Health continue to loosen the restrictions on businesses, your client families may wish to broaden attendance at visitations and funeral services. Although funerals remain exempt on mass gatherings,funeral homes must keep social distancing restrictions in mind when setting gathering size limits. The updated recommended procedures are listed below.



•Establish separate funeral home entry and exit doorways



•Post signs at entrances listing virus symptoms and request those feeling the effects to pay their respects in an alternate manner (i.e. email, written note, phone call to family)



•Educate families and visitors on best practices for social distancing and viral control etiquette (i.e. no hugging, kissing or shaking of hands; creating personal space of 6’; cough into crook of elbow).



•Utilize rope and stanchion to aid in visitor flow and barrier for family, if desired



•Social distancing of at least six-feet separation must be adhered to. It is not necessary to separate family members who reside in same household.



•Separate chapel chairs for the safety of each attendee



•Conduct small funeral services, based on proper social distancing in your funeral home facility.



•Place hand sanitizing stations throughout funeral home.



•Limit public calling hours. Provide separate time frame for elderly or immune compromised visitors.



•All funeral home employees must wear face coverings, unless exempted by a medical, safety or practicality concern. Document exemption and maintain in employee file for verification, if challenged.



•Funeral home visitors are encouraged to wear a face covering, unless specifically documented legal, life, health or safety considerations and limited documented security considerations exist. Funeral homes are not required to provide families/visitors masks, but if supplies can be obtained distribution of masks is encouraged.



•Temporarily cease catering, food, drinks andreceptions. If applicable, removecandy or novelty giftto keep hands from gravitating to a central dish.



•Restrict access to common areas, such as lounge or reception hall to prevent congregation.



•Offer to record and/or live stream events for increased visitor inclusion (music and web casting license available to all funeral homes regardless of membership status through NFDA).



•At-need and preneed arrangement conferences should be made via telephone callsor other electronic means.In person arrangements should be limited to two people.



•Sanitize, sanitize, sanitize



We care about your health and implore you to exercise aggressive measures in funeral home business practices to limit your exposure.The OFDA Board of Directors understands the challenges these adjustments present and ultimately, the practices you implement to protect your staff and families is a business decision that only you can make. Stay safe! Stay healthy.
