I want to start with expressing my concern and empathy for our community and our world during this difficult time. As you are aware, the situation surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic is fluid and official CDC guidance is continually evolving based on new information from scientists and public health officials. Among these guidelines are that people “avoid social gatherings in groups of more than 10 people” until April 10. It would appear this would impact viewings, funerals, and cemetery burials in that they would be limited – perhaps to immediate family only – for the next 15 days. We will offer live streaming as an option for these services and recommend the family to hold a larger memorial gathering at a later date. Services could also be recorded and the video shared with whomever the family deems appropriate. After this 15-day period concludes, the restrictions would continue with the CDC's eight week limitations on mass gatherings.

During this time, we should practice social distancing and avoid contact with the elderly, maintain 6 feet in distance, wherever possible, wash hands frequently for 20 seconds and avoid touching your face, mouth or eyes, stay home if you have compromised health conditions, stay home if you feel sick, especially if you have a fever.

We know social distancing and staying home can be very difficult, but the use of technology we can help keep you connected. In difficult times, I am so grateful that I am part of a strong faith community that can pray together and talk openly about the role of faith in helping to guide us and provide hope.
