Governor Kemp's announcement from Monday 4/20/2020 impacts our business? The short answer: it doesn't. The order changed nothing at all for funeral homes and how we have been operating - The CDC and GA Dept of Public Health. Specifically, Social Distancing is STILL in effect. We believe it is absolutely our responsibility to make the decisions that best serve the families in our care, our staff who has risen to the challenge beautifully, and our community as a whole. Our original message follows:
These are uncertain times for our community. We know this and we recognize our role in serving this community is an important and delicate one. The team at Bobby E. Glover Mortuary fully recognizes the seriousness of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. We want to assure the public that we are doing everything we can to keep our staff, facility, equipment, and the families and guests we serve safe. The situation is fluid and changing, and we will monitor it hour by hour, day by day. We promise.
We have and will continue to participate in web and conference calls facilitated by the National Funeral Directors Association, the CDC and the Federal Government. We are following Guidance for Funeral Directors regarding sanitization, disinfecting measures, personal precautions, and directives for social distancing and crowd limiting. Because this is changing rapidly, we will make our families aware of the current guidelines as we are notified of a death. We encorage all attendees to visitations and gravesides to wear a mask and practice social distancing.
