The Donaldson Funeral Homes are committed to providing excellent care for our families, friends and those who wish to honor the lives of their loved ones. We place a very high value on the safety for both the families we serve, their friends and our dedicated staff. In light of recent developments and announcements by federal and state authorities concerning the COVID-19 (coronavirus) the funeral homes will be implementing policies and guidelines to help decrease the risk of further transmission of the virus. Guidelines and recommendations from the CDC, OSHA, WHO and the National Funeral Directors Association will continue to be monitored.

Our funeral directors and staff will continue to personally serve with excellence and to respond in accordance to families wishes; however, they will be following guidelines set forth by Federal, State and local authorities.

Guests who are currently experiencing symptoms or think they are at high risk to contract the virus are encouraged to express their condolences via the funeral homes’ website and by sending flowers or other meaningful expressions of sympathy to the deceased’s family.

The funeral homes will continue to take your loved one into our care and will utilize proper protection and utilize “universal precautions” in the situation of known or suspected infection.

As always, we desire to honor your loved one in the best way and will work with you within the guidelines set forth by governing authorities as this situation continues to evolve.

Please feel free to contact any of our funeral homes with any concerns or questions you may have.
