CORONA VIRUS (COVID-19)
October 24, 2020 – COVID 19 Update
The most recent press conference and related news from the Governor's Office has seen parts of our county and surrounding areas listed as an 'Orange Zone' given the uptick of COVID cases. 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.
As always, 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.
With the latest regulations, funeral home are allowed to hold socially distanced public services indoors at a capacity of 25 people, which limits the amount of occupants inside at one time. Attendees can rotate in and out to facilitate visitation services.
We have set measures in place to help protect and accommodate all guests who enter our facilities to ensure their safety and comfort while honoring their loved ones. As with all public places, masks are required. We are providing hand sanitizer and have placed safety reminders throughout our facilities. Furniture has been arranged according to social distancing guidelines and we are taking extra precautions to sanitize between guests. Please do your part and if you have a cough or feel ill, do not come in person to the funeral home. As always, condolences may be left on our website. For families with concerns about those who are unable to attend in person, remote services and video tributes may be available.
For our safety and the safety of those we serve, our offices will continue to be open by appointment only. We will also continue to use telephone conferences along with limited in person meetings to facilitate service arrangements.
Now more than ever, we are committed to providing professional and personalized funeral services to our community and we are honored for the opportunity to serve.
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.
