COVID 19 Policies & Requirements

Since the COVID 19 Pandemic has affected our world, we have observed, prepared and adapted to the changes in medical information, suggestions and laws regulating our services. Our primary areas of focus are to keep the families we serve, our staff and community as safe as we possibly can while still providing meaningful service options. Below you will find a current copy of the mandatory regulations we must operate under in Georgia. These guidelines are to be observed by all funeral homes operating in the State of Georgia, not just our own.

Office Hours and Arrangements:

In an effort to safely meet with the families we serve, our hours and operational procedures have changed. Currently our normal office hours are Monday thru Friday from 9A.M. until 5P.M. We also conduct services on Saturday and Sunday.; however, we kindly ask that families wishing to make arrangements call ahead of time to make an appointment. If we do not have services that weekend, the office will not be open.

At the family’s request, we can make the arrangements over the phone. However, there will still be some paperwork that will need to be signed in person.

Services & Visitations:

We certainly understand that the loss of a loved one is a very difficult and emotional time. We often have to stop ourselves when wanting to shake hands or giving someone a hug. We ask that you be mindful of those who may not be comfortable with handshakes, hugs or other outward signs of condolences during this time. Please ask for permission before doing so.

Should you have any symptoms or have recently tested positive for COVID 19 or any other contagious disease, we ask that you not attend the services or visitations. Special arrangements can be made with the family and each particular situation in order to allow you to pay your respects. Whether it be allowing you to come at a separate time than everyone else or giving you access to watch the services online. These special arrangements must be made with permission of the next of kin.

We will continue to update our policies with the current laws of our State.
