Funerals and COVID-19
Auble Funeral Homes prioritize the health and well-being of our associates and guests. We understand this is a fluid situation and are monitoring and evaluating developments of the coronavirus (COVID-19).
We and the State of Ohio still believe that gathering and supporting one another at a time of loss is important. The State of Ohio has exempted funerals from the public gathering ban. Therefore, all services will go on as scheduled, unless a family requests to reschedule or cancel.
We anticipate that attendance at services will decrease due to the public awareness. We do ask that those at risk or those not feeling well stay home, but reach out to the family via the memorial webpage at aublefuneralhome.com. If you are attending services, please follow the CDC recommendations below.
In addition to communicating best health and safety practices to our associates and guests, Auble Funeral Homes has implemented the following:
- Associates have been reminded of and encouraged to use good hand hygiene and cough etiquette habits.
- Heightened daily disinfection practices for high-touch surfaces.
- To keep our staff and visitors as safe as possible we will be limiting contact (handshakes, hugs, etc.) with families.
We encourage you to follow the CDC recommendation to take the usual steps to help prevent the spread of illness:
- Wash your hands frequently with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available-based hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Cover your coughs and sneezes with your arm or inner elbow
- Avoid close contact with sick people
- Stay home when you are sick or not feeling well.
