Precautionary Measures in Response to COVID-19

(12/11/20 update)


Caring for the well-being of the families that we service is our top priority.  Grose Funeral Home has put in place preventative measures to keep everyone who enters our facility safe and healthy. 

We will schedule public viewings and visitations following CDC and Department of Health guidance for social distancing.  The Limited-Time Targeted Mitigation Orders apply to funeral homes.  Due to the targeted mitigation orders, viewings and visitations will be limited to 10 people in the facitily at a time on a rotational basis.  Services at our facility will remain private with with an indoor gathering limit of 10 people.  Live streaming of services will be available.  Masks are required when entering. 

Services can be held off site however, we can only provide staffing for the service if all of the Limited-Time Targeted Mitigation Orders are being followed.  

We recommend that all families and friends attending services monitor and follow recommendations on preventing the transmission of COVID-19 as issued by state and local officials and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 

To limit the potential for transmission of illness during a service, it is recommended that you avoid unnecessary person-to-person contact.  Friends and family members who are exhibiting symptoms of illness or who are sick should not attend services. 

If you are not able to attend a service, please consider supporting grieving families by mailing a sympathy card, making a personal phone call to the family or writing on the tribute wall at  Cards can be mailed directly to the funeral home and will be forwarded to the family. 

Our existing cleaning procedures have been reinforced and we will focus on disinfecting frequently touched areas like door handles, restrooms, pens, etc.  Hand sanitizer is available throughout the funeral home and, of course, restrooms are available for handwashing with soap and water. 

We will closely monitor updates issued surrounding COVID-19 and we will follow all recommended steps to ensure the continued safety, health and well-being of our clients, families and employees.
