DellaVecchia, Reilly, Smith & Boyd Funeral Home, Inc. remains committed and prepared to safely care for the families we serve during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

When possible, we will continue to enable families to participate in the rituals that are most important to them.

As members of the National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA), and the Pennsylvania Funeral Directors Association (PFDA), we regularly receive information via NFDA and PFDA from the CDC, Department of Health and Human Services and other local 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.

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 choose either burial or cremation as usual.

Our Funeral Home recognizes 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 and safely 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 are following recommended healthy habits, such as staying home when sick, washing our hands, and covering coughs and sneezes. The CDC and our local public health officials have offered a lot of helpful guidance for businesses on this topic, which we continue to follow.
