Planning A Funeral Service In A Pandemic

If you are ready to plan a funeral service at funeral homes in Waukesha, WI, you can wonder how everyone is able to participate in services and pay their respects, while they are safe and ensure they are able to keep a safe distance from each other. You may find it hard to participate in funeral service, but it is possible to plan a respectable funeral service while also ensuring that all your guests who attend are able to stay healthy and feel safe. Here are some tips that can help.


Spread The Seating

A lot of people will be sitting near each other at a service and if you want to make sure they are far enough apart, you can set the chairs out in a way that will keep them spread apart. You can choose to move them close enough for those who want to talk and mingle with each other to do this, but also ensure it offers enough space to include all the safety guidelines. This can help avoid any illness during the funeral services. You may also have to remind your guests in a polite way that they should keep their distance and see others' safety and health as a priority while at the funeral service.


Require Masks

You might have many guests who do not want to wear their masks at the funeral, but this does not mean that you can’t enforce or suggest that they do it anyway. Most people respect your wishes and will understand why the masks are required. You can even hold a box with masks in the funeral home so that you can deliver them to guests who may appear without one or bring anyone who didn’t know to bring one. When done, the guests can simply throw them. These masks are cheap and provide the best way for guests to attend the services and make sure everyone else around them is safe and able to say their goodbyes as well.


Live Streams

It might seem a little odd to video or stream a funeral service, but it can be the best option to include those who want to be safe and are not able to attend. In this way, they still have the opportunity to feel that they are part of the service, and the opportunity to say goodbye. Although this kind of funeral service is not a funeral that everyone might expect or is used to, this is a safe way to say goodbye, while still practicing social distancing and respect.
