Forbes Funeral Home Is Prepared to Safely Care For Families During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Forbes Funeral Home of Sturgeon Bay remains committed and prepared to safely care for the families it serves during the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Whenever possible, Forbes Funeral Home will continue to enable families to participate in the rituals that are most important to them. 

And according to the CDC, at this time, there is no known risk associated with being in the same room at a funeral or visitation service with the body of someone who died of confirmed or suspected COVID-19; however, federal, state and local public health guidance may impact the size of gathering a family is able to plan. Families may chose either burial or cremation as usual. 

“At Forbes Funeral Home, we recognize our responsibility to protect the health of those we are privileged to serve, and we will continue to guide families, as we always have, in ways they can meaningfully commemorate the life of their loved one, while adhering to the guidance issued by federal, state and local public health officials.”

“Our staff remains vigilant about disinfecting our facilities and ensuring we’re all following recommended healthy habits, such as staying home when sick, washing our hands, covering coughs and sneezes, and maintaining appropriate social distance. The CDC and our state and local public health officials have offered a lot of helpful guidance for businesses on this topic, which we continue to follow.”

As a member of the National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA), Forbes Funeral Home regularly receives information via NFDA from the CDC, Department of Health and Human Services and other agencies about the evolution of COVID-19 in the United States. NFDA continues to lead the conversation with federal officials about the role of funeral service as it relates to the COVID-19 pandemic.

If the public has any questions about the measures we are taking, please feel free to reach us by phone or e-mail.
