Additional Information March 17, 2020 WE ENCOURAGE YOU, UNLESS YOU ARE A FAMILY MEMBER, AS THE CDC, PRESIDENT TRUMP AND GOVERNOR WOLF HAVE STATED, NOT TO ATTEND PUBLIC GATHERINGS OF OVER 10 PEOPLE. THE NEW CDC GUIDANCE RECOMMENDS THAT "FOR THE NEXT 8 WEEKS, ORGANIZERS (WHETHER GROUPS OR INDIVIDUALS) CANCEL OR POSTPONE IN-PERSON EVENTS THAT CONSIST OF 50 PEOPLE OR MORE THROUGHOUT THE UNITED STATES." THE CDC SUGGESTED THAT FUNERALS CAN STILL TAKE PLACE UNDER THE 50-PERSON LIMIT. FOR FUNERALS TAKING PLACE, THEY SUGGESTED LIMITING ATTENDANCE TO SELECT FAMILY. THEY FURTHER ADVISED THAT THOSE WHO ARE ILL AND ARE AT-RISK (E.G., ELDERLY, IMMUNE-COMPROMISED) SHOULD BE ENCOURAGED TO STAY HOME. FUNERAL HOMES SHOULD ALSO URGE ATTENDEES TO FOLLOW RECOMMENDED HEALTHY HABITS SUCH AS SOCIAL DISTANCING, HAND HYGIENE, COVERING COUGH AND SNEEZES, ETC. DIRECT EYE CONTACT, LOVING WORDS AND WARM SMILE ARE AS MEANINGFUL TO THE FAMILY AS A TRADITIONAL HANDSHAKE OR A HUG. Prevention: • Cover coughs or sneezes with your elbow. Do not use your hands! • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available. • Clean surfaces frequently, including countertops, light switches, cell phones, remotes, and other frequently touched items. • Contain: if you are sick, stay home until you are feeling better. In an update on Monday 3/16/2020, the White House released “The President’s Coronavirus Guidelines for America - 15 Days to Slow the Spread.” AMONG THESE GUIDELINES ARE THAT PEOPLE “AVOID SOCIAL GATHERINGS IN GROUPS OF MORE THAN 10 PEOPLE” FOR THE NEXT 15 DAYS. It would appear this would impact funerals/viewings in that they would be limited – perhaps to immediate family only – for the next 15 days. Please follow the published CDC guidelines if planning on attending any services or public gatherings. One way to express your concerns to the family is to contact them in a week or two to express your sympathy. That is when they will need your kind words and love. Thank You for your cooperation.
