Important Update Regarding COVID-19
Morrissett Funeral and Cremation Service is constantly monitoring the rapid changes of COVID-19 (Corona Virus)
We are following instructions by the Governor of Virginia, The CDC, The National Funeral Directors Association, The Virginia Funeral Directors Association and Regulatory Support Services.
As of March 16, 2020, the CDC has placed a limit on gatherings in public places to 50 people; with the President recommending a limit of 10 people. We are committed to the families we serve and the communities that support them. We ask that families consider that the type of gatherings they hold to be ever mindful of those who attend, and their health and well-being. We also ask that you refrain from hugging or shaking hands and practice safe social distancing.
What this means for services:
Services already scheduled for this week will be held and we will practice safe social distancing.
We have placed hand sanitizer and polite reminders throughout the building to assist with cleanliness. Our staff members will assist in typing in names on our electronic registers to lessen any contact. If you are not in attendance and would like to pass condolences or have your name added to the guest book, please call us and we will assist or utilize the online condolences at Morrissett.com
Once again, we ask you to practice safe social distancing, and to please not attend if you are ill or at high risk.
Families that maybe in need of our services in the coming weeks, please know that we will care for you and your loved ones with the utmost respect. We are asking families that we serve to plan services that are in compliance with the CDC recommendations that keep the safety of others in mind.
This can mean private family services, with a public memorial at a later date, or private family service that can be recorded and streamed for the public to view, or a public graveside service outdoors (no cemetery chapel services).
Please be aware that no coffee, cookies, or cups of water will be available to any guest or families. We will have bottled water available at your request.
As we monitor this ever rapidly changing situation, we will continue to provide updates in regard to the measures we are taking. We appreciate the support and kindness shown during this difficult time. If you have any questions or need further assistance, please contact us at 804-275-7828 or e-mail to Staff@Morrissett.com
