Funeral homes make adjustments after stay at home order

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - Governor Holcomb’s stay-at-home order goes into place Tuesday, and funeral homes are on the list of essential businesses to remain open.

They’re making some adjustments because of COVID-19.

Osborne Funeral Home Director tells us not only are funeral gatherings now limited to ten people, but they’re also taking sanitary precautionary measures against COVID-19.

Funeral Home Director Stacia Osborne-Christian says they’re prepared for the change. They’re giving people an option to live stream a funeral service.

“Well, being that I’m a little older, and technology challenged, it’s going to be fun, but where there’s a will, there’s a way," Osborne-Christian said. "Like I said, servicing the families making sure they get what they need.”

Osborne-Christian says they’re disinfecting the seats, cleaning doorknobs, and asking people to clean pens after signing the guest register book.

Osborne-Christian tells us they’re offering an option to delay a funeral right now.
