Landry's Funeral Home Is Prepared to Safely Care For Families During the COVID-19 Pandemic
Landry's Funeral Home remains committed and prepared to safely care for the families it serves during the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Whenever possible, Landry's Funeral Home will continue to enable families to participate in the rituals that are most important to them.
At this juncture, we will be limiting all viewings and services at the funeral home to 50 percent of our capacity at any given time in the funeral home. Please know that this protocol has been dictated by state guidelines and will be lifted immediately once the state allows us to go back to our normal operations.
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; Depending on a family’s preferences, their loved one can be safely embalmed. Families may chose either burial or cremation as usual.
At Landry's Funeral Home, we recognize our responsibility to protect the health of those we are privileged to serve and 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.
Our staff remains vigilant about cleaning our facilities and ensuring we’re all following recommended healthy habits, such as staying home when sick, washing our hands, and covering coughs and sneezes. The CDC and our state and local public health officials have offered a lot of helpful guidance for businesses on this topic, which we continue to follow.
As a member of the National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA), Landry's 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.
