We will allow 33 people at a time into the funeral home. You MUST be wearing a mask to enter, and masks must be worn AT ALL TIMES. Every 1/2 hour, we will clear the funeral home of guests (not family), sanitize, and reopen for 33 more guests. The sanitizing will take approximately 5 minutes each time. Inside the funeral home there are tape marks on the floor to promote social distancing, and there will be an orderly line to pay your respects. There will be a one way flow of visitors as entry is allowed only through the front door and exiting only through the back door. Once a visitor leaves they are not permitted back into the building.
