The staff at Blurton Funeral Homes prioritize the health and well-being of our associates, family and guests. We understand this is a fluid and serious situation that we are in today and that we are monitoring and evaluating developments of the coronavirus (COVID-19).
We still believe that gathering and supporting one another at a time of loss is very important. But at this time, we are asking everyone to support a limited gathering and visitation policy of no more than 10 people. This is a guideline of the CDC and the state board of health. We will be allowing small family groups and limited persons at visitation, funerals and gravesides until this crisis is over.
We do ask that those at risk or those not feeling well stay at home, but reach out to the family via the memorial webpage on www.BlurtonFuneralHomes.com.
We also ask those who are attending visitation and funeral services to follow the CDC recommendations to take the usual steps to help prevent the spread of illness. Social distancing is very important in the control of the spread of this virus.
We are also taking the steps to ensure that our facilities are being properly disinfected during this time and that all public areas are being routinely cleaned to ensure everyone’s safety.
Thank you for your patience and understanding in this time we are in with the (COVID-19). When this crisis is over we will resume our normal procedures and operation.
