Buie Funeral Home remains committed and prepared to safely care for the families it serves during the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Whenever possible, Buie Funeral Home will continue to enable families to participate in the rituals that are most important to them.
And 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. Depending on a family’s preferences, their loved one can be safely embalmed. Families may chose either burial or cremation as usual.
At Buie Funeral Home we recognize our responsibility to protect the health of those we are privileged to serve. 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.
We remain 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.
For public safety concerns we would request that families consider services, which include immediate family members only. We will also allow families that select these private services to have a memorial service at our facility at a later date for no additional charge. Viewings will be open to the public during business hours to allow the public to come in small groups, no more than 10 total in the chapel at a given time. Also, please sign the online guestbook and we will print your condolences in the guestbook that will be given to the family.
