Our Response to COVID-19
EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY- MARCH 23, 2020
As we are faced with the growing effects of the Coronavirus Pandemic (COVID-19), Walker Funeral Home and Cremation is dedicated to abiding by the guidelines of the NC Board of Funeral Services along with the Center for Disease Control Prevention (CDC) to prevent the unintentional spread of germs.
In an effort to protect the health and safety of our families, the community, and staff as well, Walker Funeral Home and Cremation pursuant to Executive Order Number 120 issued by Governor Roy Cooper on March 23, 2020, gatherings of 50 or more are prohibited in an inside or outside enclosed space. Know that every effort will be made to protect our families as we schedule our Chapel, Church, Private and Graveside Services. We will discuss all available options with our families and collectively decide the best and most safe option.
In addition to best practice procedures and legal sanitation requirements already in place here at Walker Funeral Home and Cremation, we have incorporated the following guidelines by the World Health Organization (WHO) and Center for Disease Control Prevention (CDC) to prevent the unintentional spread of germs:
Cleaning hands with antibacterial soap and warm water for 20 seconds
Practicing social distancing
Requiring anyone exhibiting symptoms of illness to stay at home
Thoroughly cleaning hard surfaces and high-traffic areas
Limiting physical contact such as hugging, shaking hands, kissing on cheeks, and etc.
This is a difficult time for our nation and the families we serve as the COVID-19 virus continues to spread across the states. Walker Funeral Home and Cremation is more than obliged to answer questions and concerns regarding services to memorialize the death of your loved ones.
If you have any questions, we may be contacted at (910) 814-1200, or firstname.lastname@example.org
