COVID-19, Corona Virus Disease
w/ Massachusetts Essential Business – Funeral Homes
In Massachusetts, you may have up to 10 people in the funeral home chapel or in the arrangement room but not more than that in the whole building, who are guests to the funeral home.
We recommend that you then have one person from the public, one of the ten guests, come in to the main chapel, pay their respects, be greeted by the family in a line, and then proceed to the exit designated by the staff of Peck Funeral Homes.
It has always been our tradition to provide service and help during difficult times, including during this most different of times, that our community and nation faces.
To assist with our local communities efforts to reduce the spread of COVID-19, the corona virus we at Peck Funeral Homes will continue to monitor and follow local and state laws, which are posted on our front doors to the funeral home, as they relate to gatherings and all other mandated and suggested precautions from our local and Commonwealth of Massachusetts leaders.
We also monitor and advise you to look for guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. From our monitoring of such news and internet reports you may wish to include Vitamin D(3) in your diet to reduce the chance of COVID-19. Hand washing and using hand sanitizer is also recommended.
We also require at all times you will keep on masks, surgical masks, N95 masks, microfiber masks, and masks of sufficient quality to keep out the Corona virus. As well you are asked to bring your personal hand sanitizer and keep gloves on, which we may provide, at all times in the funeral home. We do have personal hand sanitizer if you don’t have any (for limited quantities available).
Other Funeral Home Safety Measures
In response to Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19), we have increased our frequency of cleaning and disinfecting our funeral facilities. We are training our team to the changing laws and guidance provided by local and state authorities so that we can provide you with the best service that is both responsible and compliant. We appreciate your cooperation with our staff and noting that this is a stressful time, we kindly ask you to remember this is also a stressful time for our staff as they have spent many hours and days with this current hazardous situation including effecting the removal, sterilization and preparation of your loved ones.
No one exhibiting signs of COVID-19, will be allowed into the funeral home at any time, and this includes people coughing, exhibiting temperatures over 99 degrees, repeatedly sneezing, or showing signs of runny noses, and/or shortness of breath.
We are providing remote arrangements and service options to our families and guests, which we are happy to discuss with you over the phone (at either 781-843-0890 or 781-337-0093) or by email, at email@example.com, or by going on our website see peckservices.com and go to the home page and on the left hand side click on ATNEED planning and fill out the full questionnaire and submit it and then give us a call at 781-843-0890 or 337-0093 and let us know that you have completed that form.
To Our Families and to the local community: If you have been exposed to, or are exhibiting any of the symptoms associated with (fever, shortness of breath and cough, the known exposure to Coronavirus (COVID-19), we will work with you remotely to answer and address your personal needs. We ask that if you are quarantined that you do not come into the funeral home until and unless you are cleared by a doctor, by presenting a valid doctor’s letter.
All others, not exhibiting signs of COVID-19 infection must at all time maintain the recommended distance of six feet between you and the person next to you, at all times.
You must cover your cough or sneeze with and your mask and with a tissue in the bathroom clean up and throw the TISSUE into the toilet and flush it down. Please do not throw potentially infected TISSUES into the trash. Please do not attempt to flush paper towels. Instead of using paper towels, please use the warm air driers (they are in each bathroom and are stainless steel driers to the left of the sinks). The air driers are sanitary. Please do not use paper towels since they will clog the toilets.
Washing your hands in the bathroom or at least with hand sanitizer is required after all sneezing or large coughing spells.
Thank you for understanding this during these difficult times for everyone.
