Facts about funerals and COVID-19

To Our Friends and Neighbors,

We would like to assure you that we remain available and will continue to respond as quickly as possible when our services are needed. We have been monitoring and evaluating developments of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and closely following the guidelines and recommendations of the CDC, Florida Department of Health, State of Florida, and Federal Government. Haisley Funeral Homes prioritizes the health and well-being of our community, the families we serve, and our staff. In order to help contain the spread of COVID-19, we will be implementing additional precautionary measures.

Effective immediately, Haisley Funeral & Cremation Service and Haisley Funeral & Cremation Service Tribute Center, will only offer private family- only services and visitations. We understand that gathering and supporting one another at a time of loss is important, but we will be following the CDC’s recommendations of no more than 50 people in attendance. Unfortunately, the general public will be unable to attend these private gatherings. We will continue to offer an online Guestbook and online Tribute Wall on our website, www.haisleyfuneralhome.com. In addition, we will be offering the option of live on-site video streaming. Those families that choose to hold a private service at this time will have the option to hold a public memorial service at a later date. Additionally, we will be working by appointment only at both locations and we encourage all families to make arrangements virtually or over the phone when possible.

Furthermore, to protect the elderly and those most at risk from the virus, Haisley Funeral Homes has increased our vigilance in cleaning, disinfecting and sanitization protocol at our locations. If you are attending private services, please follow the CDC recommendations below.

We encourage you to follow the CDC recommendation to take the usual steps to help prevent the spread of illness:

  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available- use hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Cover you coughs and sneezes with your arm or inner elbow.
  • Avoid close contact with sick people.
  • Stay home when you are sick or not feeling well.

Please know that this is a dynamic situation and any changes that we’ve made, or will be making in the future, are intended to help our community navigate through this unprecedent and troubling time. From all of us at Haisley, we appreciate your cooperation and understanding.
