COVID-19 WHAT ARE WE DOING TO KEEP YOU AND OUR EMPLOYEES SAFE?

COVID-19
WHAT ARE WE DOING TO KEEP YOU AND OUR EMPLOYEES SAFE?

The health and safety of our guests and associates is our top priority. At this time, Strawbridge Memorial Chapel will continue its operations and welcome the public for visitations and services.  While we anticipate attendance at services will decrease due to public awareness of COVID-19, we do ask that those at risk or not feeling well please stay home. 

We want to assure you that the Strawbridge team is taking proactive measures to help prevent the spread of potential illness and are closely monitoring all communications distributed by the Center For Disease Control (CDC) and the National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA), as well as our local and state health agencies in regard to all information on the Coronavirus (Covid-19).

To ensure your risk is minimized while attending an event at our facility we have put the following procedures in place:

1.       Our staff will make environmental cleaning procedures top priority at our facilities. Every 3 hours all door handles, knobs, faucets, toilets, as well as any surfaces that come into human contact will be diligently cleaned with an antibacterial agent.

2.       Social Distancing Zones (distance of 6ft.) have been be created between visitors and family members of the deceased to keep from spreading of the virus by personal contact.

a.       In an effort to minimize direct contact, we ask that you consider avoiding shaking hands or physical contact with the members of the family or other guests.

3.       Hand sanitizer, gloves and Kleenex will be available

4.       Hot beverage service to the public (i.e. coffee) has been suspended during this time to limit exposure. Individual water bottles will be available by request (for as long as bottled water is available to us).

5.       Posters created by the Center for Disease Control with information on the virus and how to protect yourself from contracting it will be posted throughout our facility.

6.       We have adjusted hours for viewing times.

We request that guests who are experiencing any cold or flu-like symptoms including fever, cough and shortness of breath or have been in contact with or have recently traveled to any of the affected countries refrain from visiting the funeral home at this time.

To meet the needs of grieving families while adhering to current guidelines, we recommend families consider compiling funeral guest lists, issuing invitations, holding smaller services for immediate family members, and delaying services when practicable. We encourage livestreaming services online so those who cannot attend can watch, and we will also be offering live streaming of services held in our chapels, where available on our Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/StrawbridgeMemorial/.   Those who do wish to stay at home can also reach out to the family via the memorial webpage on our website www.Strawbridgemc.com.

We recognize that these restrictions may add additional burden to your already grieving families, but the we will continue to provide support to families during this difficult time.”
