A Full Service Provider of Funeral, Cremation and Preplanning Services
FEMA OFFERING FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE FOR COVID-RELATED FUNERAL EXPENSES
"Under the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2021 and the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, FEMA is providing financial assistance for COVID-19 related funeral expenses incurred after January 20, 2020."
Our Services to You Under the Current Emergency Orders
Under the current executive orders, the State of Minnesota has removed attendance limitations for churches and funeral homes; however, proper distancing between individuals and/or households is still required to be maintained, keeping the effective capacity of a facility below the normal maximum.
Area churches will each have their own individual capacity and safety guidelines, and some cemeteries may also have restrictions in place. At our funeral homes, we are able to conduct services with an effective maximum of approximately 50 people seated in the chapel, provided the state-mandated distancing can be maintained. Auxiliary seating with video simulcasting and overflow viewing space is also available, with a maximum capacity of approximately 120-150 people in the facility as a whole for a service. Services can be livestreamed and/or recorded and published on our website afterwards for viewing by those who are unable to attend.
Visitations at our facilities will have effective capacities similar to services, with a facility maximum of approximately 120-150, depending on ability to distance from others.
While restrictions remain in place, we suggest people continue to consider smaller, more private services as needed to avoid issues with capacity limitations and distancing requirements.
In order for us to stay in compliance with state requirements, the following guidelines must be adhered to:
- Distancing of six feet from other persons not part of your own household must be maintained at all times. Please, no hugging or handshakes.
- Masks are required.
- Shared food and/or beverage containers are not permitted. The distribution of any food or beverages to attendees is prohibited at the funeral home; luncheon halls that are able to meet the state's requirements for food service should be utilized for this purpose.
We will work with families to determine on a case-by-case basis what options are available, taking into consideration the limitations in place at the funeral home, church, and/or cemetery as applicable. The size of services will continue to be dependent on the venue and on the inclinations of families and potential attendees. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation as we work to serve you to the best of our ability while maintaining compliance with state regulation.
