Hills Funeral Home Is Prepared to Safely Care For Families During the COVID-19 Pandemic.
We remain committed and prepared to safely care for the families served during the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Whenever possible, we will continue to enable families to participate in the rituals that are most important to them. At other times we will follow the orders of the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and State Of North Carolina Policy's.
According to the CDC, at this time, federal, state and local public health guidance does impact the size of gathering a family is able to plan at the death of ANY person . Families may choose either burial or cremation as usual. As of September 2021 with COVID cases on the rise for North Carolina the governor has request that we continue to observe social distancing requirements and wear mask.
We at Hills 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 following recommended healthy habits, such as staying home when sick, washing our hands, covering coughs and sneezes, not touching our face and observing social distancing when possible. The CDC and our state and local public health officials have offered helpful guidance for businesses on this topic, which we continue to follow. We regularly receive information via the office of the Governor, the Department of Health and Human Services , the Board of Funeral Services and other agencies about the evolution of COVID-19 in the United States and the role of funeral service as it relates to the global pandemic.
We remind our clients that North Carolina has a good number of citizens who have already received the Covid shots and hope more will get the shots. We encourage families to cooperate with the funeral home as we carry out the governors orders. When scheduling conferences at our funeral home we encourage our families to observe these safety health measures.
