POLICY REGARDING FUNERAL SERVICE DURING
THIS PANDEMIC EMERGENCY (replaces previous statements)
 

Southern Funeral Home Is Prepared to Safely Care For Families During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Southern Funeral Home remains committed and prepared to safely care for the families it serves during the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Whenever possible, Southern Funeral Home will continue to enable families to participate in the rituals that are most important to them.

And according to the CDC, at this time, there is no known risk associated with being in the same room at a funeral or visitation service with the body of someone who died of confirmed or suspected COVID-19; however, federal, state and local public health guidance may impact the size of gathering a family is able to plan. Depending on a family’s preferences, their loved one can be safely embalmed. Families may choose either burial or cremation as usual.

At Southern Funeral Home, we recognize our responsibility to protect the health of those we are privileged to serve. We will continue to guide families, as we always have, in ways they can meaningfully commemorate the life of their loved one, while adhering to the guidance issued by federal, state and local public health officials.

Our staff remains vigilant about cleaning our facilities and ensuring we’re all following recommended healthy habits, such as staying home when sick, washing our hands, and covering coughs and sneezes. The CDC and our state and local public health officials have offered a lot of helpful guidance for businesses on this topic, which we continue to follow.

A member of the National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA) Southern Funeral Home regularly receives information via NFDA from the CDC, Department of Health and Human Services and other agencies about the evolution of COVID-19 in the United States. NFDA continues to lead the conversation with federal officials about the role of funeral service as it relates to the COVID-19 pandemic.

If the we can be of assistance, please contact us at 318 628-6921

IMPORTANT NOTE:

The CDC suggests that funerals be limited to 10 persons.

Some of our clergy are requiring services be limited to the immediate family members.

We want you to be aware of these changes which we hope will protect you, your family and friends.

 

A wise person once said "when words are not enough, we have ceremony". We at Southern Funeral Home believe this to be very true.

For thousands of years, funerals have been a means of expressing our beliefs, thoughts and feelings about the death of someone we love.

Funerals are most meaningful when they are personalized. Southern Funeral Home has a long tradition of creating meaningful life celebrations to honor loved ones that have died.
