CORONA VIRUS (COVID-19)
Updated April 3, 2020
As you know, we are experiencing unprecedented times in our nation. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected all of our lives in ways we could never imagine. Needless to say, it has affected the way we conduct our business.
First, we are closely monitoring and following the guidelines from the CDC, National Funeral Directors Association, the NYS Funeral Directors Association as well as state and local emergency protocols.
We have set in place new measures to help protect and accommodate all guests who enter our facilities to ensure the safety and comfort while honoring their loved ones.
Governor Cuomo has placed the following restrictions on funerals and gatherings in New York State. Private family viewings and funerals can take place, at the funeral home only, and cemetery services with as few immediate family members as possible.
The federal government has restricted gatherings to no more than 10 people. For us, this means no more than 10 people including funeral home personnel (which we will limit, to the best of our ability), clergy and mourners.
New York State has expanded the “New York on Pause” quarantine until April 29th, and the federal government until April 30th.
In light of the above restrictions, online condolences may be left on our websites
We will be limiting our contact, for our safety and the safety of those we serve, to telephone conferences and limited in person meetings (to acquire signatures and finalize service arrangements)
We have placed reminders throughout our facilities to ask guests to limit physical contact as much as possible (hand shaking, hugging, etc.) and are providing hand sanitizer
We are taking extra precautions to sanitize public areas of our facilities.
Welcome to the Barber Funeral Home Web Site. Our tradition of fairness, excellence, professionalism and integrity has brought comfort to countless local families in their time of sorrow. We pledge that same tradition to you, and we pledge that we will be here for you when you need our help and support.
