Navigating the uncharted and fluid changes thrust upon Funeral Directors by COVID-19 can feel overwhelming. How is this industry to lessen the risk to society by limiting face to face interactions, especially for those in higher-risk categories – the elderly or those immunocompromised, while at the same time providing a service honoring the life of the deceased? The funeral industry is in a precarious situation attempting to balance the need to say final good-byes and at the same time protecting the health of those left behind. Death stops for no one. Quarantine and pandemic are no exception. Allowing for communal grief while at the same time adhering to the guidelines of medical professionals and our national, state, and local governments becomes essential.
