In keeping with the President's extension of federal guidelines, The Michigan Funeral Directors Association (MFDA) is strongly recommending that members limit any funeral gathering or memorial event to ten people or less in one room at a single time. Last evening, President Trump's coronavirus task force recommended extending its earlier "15 days to slow the spread" recommendations until the end of April. MFDA believes that the evolving circumstances warrant funeral directors heeding the federal guideline.
As a reminder, social distancing should be practiced regardless of the number of attendees. Furthermore, the following should be asked to refrain from attending either the arrangements conference or any services:
A person who has tested positive for COVID-19 or is under investigation for COVID-19
Anyone who has been in proximity with an individual who has tested positive
Anyone with a fever or exhibiting cold and/or flu symptoms
Anyone who has recently traveled internationally
At this time we are able to offer live stream recording options for services held at our location. We will continue to keep you updated as more guidelines are implemented.
