Liberty Mortuary Is Prepared to Safely Care For Families During the COVID-19 Pandemic
Liberty Mortuary and Cremation Services remains committed and prepared to safely care for the families it serves during the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Whenever possible, Liberty Mortuary 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. Depending on a family’s preferences, their loved one can be safely embalmed. Families may choose either burial or cremation as usual.
At Liberty Mortuary we recognize our responsibility to protect the health of those we are privileged to serve. 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 cleaning our facilities and ensuring we’re all following recommended healthy habits, such as staying home when sick, washing our hands, and covering coughs and sneezes. 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.
To ensure your risk is minimized during these unprecedented times we have put the following in place:
- Online memorials thru our website are available instead of signing a register book in person. We also will sign for you, just simply give us a call.
- Our staff will clean and disinfect our facility in between each service and multiple times during the day.
- Our staff will use additional personal protective equipment in facilities such as, homes, hospitals, nursing homes, hospice facilities to ensure patients and residents are protected.
- Hand sanitizer and Kleenex will be available throughout our facility.
- Individual bottled water or drinks will be available upon request. (for as long as it is available to us)
- As per recommendation of the CDC public events need to be kept to a maximum of 10 people or less. Our funeral directors will present options to your family in regard to keeping you safe and still allowing you to have some type of service. These are unprecedented times, so we promise to be reasonable and flexible.
- Funeral, cremation, cemetery arrangements, and advanced funeral arrangements may be made by telephone or video conference if requested.
- Private services and burial may be held now, and a public service may be held later.
- Personal space zones (distance of 6ft) will be created between visitors and family members of the deceased to keep from spreading of the virus by personal contact. Guests will be reminded to avoid all physical contact.
- Information and reminders created by the CDC and SCDHEC are posted throughout our facility.
- Services can be recorded and made available at the family’s request.
A member of the National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA), Liberty Mortuary 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.
