News: Funeral Homes, families, adjust to coronavirus restrictions

While residents across the state are adjusting to restrictions on everyday life amid the coronavirus outbreak, some face the additional burden of losing a loved one during a time when typical services bringing family and friends closer together to pay their last respects cannot be held.

“We are not able to invite the general public to any service,” said John Stewart, funeral director and location leader for Walrath and Stewart Funeral Home. “We can do a private service for family and a memorial service or celebration of life at a later time when the health situation is over.”

Although funeral homes were exempted from an executive order from Gov. Andrew Cuomo closing all non-essential businesses on March 22 to slow the spread of the coronavirus, funeral homes like Walrath and Stewart are following social distancing protocol while limiting services to immediate family who are asked to maintain the social distance of at least six feet between them with no more than 10 individuals present at a time based on federal guidelines.
