SPECIAL PUBLIC HEALTH NOTICE

SPECIAL PUBLIC HEALTH MEASURES
Like everyone else; we here at Humphreys Funeral Home are monitoring the Coronavirus / COVID-19 outbreak and doing what we can to protect the health and well-being of our customers, our dedicated staff and members of the community.
As a result of the news conference held by the Premier of New Brunswick and Dr. Russell of Public Health, as of Thursday, March 19th, 2020; at this time we have suspended conducting funeral services to the public.
Adhering to public health guidelines to ensure the well being, health & safety of the families we serve and to our staff and their families is of utmost highest priorty, in these uncertain times.
We want the people in our community to be reassured that we will be available to serve you 24/7 and assist you in every way to ensure that the highest dignity shown to your loved who has passed away as well as to you and members of your family and friends remains our priorty.
At this time the size and scope of services will be restructured, in accordance to the public health directive. We will be able to offer your family the ability to broadcast the service from our facility to family & friends through our live broadcast service. We encourage you to call the funeral home 466 - 3110 to confirm the specific arrangements for the services you are interested in.
In addition, we will be taking certain precautions to help ensure the health and peace of mind of all of those entering our funeral home. We wanted to share these with you and ask for your cooperation in trying to keep everyone safe.
•Obviously we will want to meet with the key family member only; charged with the responsibility to make those important decisions surrounding the services of their loved one. A lot of information will be able to be gathered by phone and email.
•Discussions will be held with the primary arranger to best facilitate a safe private family visitation
•Hand sanitizer will be available for use through the lobby,parlours and coffee room and reception area. We encourage you to wash your hands regularly.
•We will be doing our best to regularly to disinfect the common areas in the funeral home, especially those things we all touch like door handles, counters, and hand railings.
•If you wish to send a condolence or pledge a memorial donation, we encourage you to do so on our website or by telephone. At this time we will be suspending the handling of cash or cheques for the purposes of charitable donations. Although it has been our privilege to take donations on behalf of the charities, you may place the donation through our website and the memorial will be forwarded on to the family, however to honour your donation it will have to be forwarded on to the charity directly or placed at a later date when things return to normal.
•While we certainly understand the importance of coming here to support family or friends at a time of loss, if you are feeling unwell, having flu-like symptoms, or running a fever, please stay home until you have recovered. We are asking the same of our staff.
We thank everyone for their understanding as we continue to monitor this evolving situation and determine the best way to protect everyone. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.
