Lawrence T. Miller Funeral Home remains committed and prepared to safely care for the families it serves during the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
At this time, we are allowing 10% capacity indoors, which is approximately 35 people at Lawrence T. Funeral Home for visitations. Churches, synagogues, temples, mosques, and other places of congregate worship are specifically excluded from the limitations set forth. Churches are allowing masses with capacity varied depending on size of church; cemeteries also vary. Please keep in mind that each church and cemetery are different. According the PA State Guidelines, 50 people are allowed together at an outdoor gathering.
Face masks are required to be worn while inside the building.
According to the CDC, at this time, there is no known risk associated with being in the same room at a funeral or visitation service with the body of someone who died of confirmed or suspected COVID-19; however, federal, state and local public health guidance may impact the size of gathering a family is able to plan.
Our staff remains vigilant about cleaning our facilities and ensuring we’re all following recommended healthy habits and protocols, such as staying home when sick, washing our hands, and covering coughs and sneezes.
We will continue to guide families, as we always have, in ways they can meaningfully commemorate the life of their loved one, while adhering to the guidance issued by federal, state and local public health officials. Lawrence T. Miller Funeral Home regularly receives information via NFDA from the CDC, Department of Health and Human Services and other agencies about the evolution of COVID-19 in the United States. NFDA continues to lead the conversation with federal officials about the role of funeral service as it relates to the COVID-19 pandemic.
