COVID-19 VIRUS & FUNERALS
As of March 18, 2020, an Order from the State of Ohio Department of Health (ODH) banned 'mass gatherings' of 50 or more people here in the State of Ohio, as a precaution of the coronavirus (COVID-19). However, events such as funerals, weddings, or religious gatherings were exempted from this Order.
We all know and understand the common-sense precautions that should be taken right now. Currently at Moore Funeral Home, we are doing as much work as possible with family members or pre-need clients over the phone, or via email. The practices of 'social distancing' are especially difficult in our community-based service occupation. During a time of grief, it is only natural to want to shake hands, or hug relatives and friends, in a visitation or funeral setting. However, these practices must be avoided during this virus outbreak.
Even though officially exempted from the 'mass gathering' Order, we are working closely with families on an individual basis to determine what type of services best honor a loved one during this uncertain and unusual time. Careful consideration will be taken to avoid any large gatherings. These precautions may include live-streaming or recording of services, with a family's permission. Although online certainly does not replace giving condolence and support face-to-face, we will continue to offer that option via this website.
Our years of experience allow us to be prepared to handle any situation, and still be able to provide an opportunity for loved ones to say goodbye and begin the healing process. As always, we are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Feel free to reach out with any questions or thoughts. We feel honored to serve our hometown of Covington and surrounding area communities, and we appreciate your understanding as we all work through this challenging time for our state and nation.
