To Our Friends and Neighbors,
We would like to assure you that we remain available and will continue to respond as quickly as possible when our services are needed. We have been monitoring and evaluating developments of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and closely following the guidelines and recommendations of the CDC, New York Department of Health, State of New York, and Federal Government. Joseph F. Nardone Funeral Home prioritizes the health and well-being of our community, the families we serve, and our staff. In order to help contain the spread of COVID-19, we will be implementing additional precautionary measures.
We understand that gathering and supporting one another at a time of loss is important, but we will be following the CDC's recommendations of no more than 30% capacity in our funeral home. We will continue to offer an online Guestbook and online Tribute Wall on our website. In addition, we will be offering the option of live on-site video streaming as well as recording to our Youtube channel.
Furthermore, Joseph F. Nardone Funeral Home has increased our vigilance in cleaning, disinfecting, and sanitation protocol. We are also requiring everyone entering our facility to wear a facial covering for everyone's protection. If you are attending services, please follow the CDC recommendations below.
Please know that this is a dynamic situation and any changes that we've made, or will be making in the future, are intended to help our community navigate through this unprecedented and troubling time. From all of us at Nardone, we appreciate your cooperation and understanding.
- Wash your hands frequently with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available- use hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Cover you coughs and sneezes with your arm or inner elbow.
- Wear a facial covering
- Avoid close contact with sick people.
- Stay home when you are sick or not feeling well.
Grieving in a Pandemic
The Nature of Grief
Grief is our emotional response to loss. At this particularly difficult time, it is important that you give yourself permission to feel the emotions you are feeling, which may change from day to day or even from one moment to the next.
