To Our Families

Informational Bulletin on Funerals and COVID-19

On behalf of our families who are experiencing a loss during this unprecedented period in our communities, we want to thank you for your willingness to offer your love and support. Because of government restrictions, you may want to consider alternative ways to make a meaningful connection with the family besides attending their visitation and service. Some of these ways may include:  
  • Leave a message of comfort on their loved one’s Tribute Wall
  • Send a sympathy card or make a phone call 
  • Make a memorial contribution to their charity of choice
  • Send a personal note sharing a special story about their loved one 
If you choose to attend a public visitation or service, make yourself familiar with the following requirements: 
  • No food will be provided by Schnauss North East Florida Funeral Home and Cremation Services or allowed to be brought in by family or friends. 
  • If you are 65 years of age or older we strongly discourage your attendance, this is for your safety. 
  • Please do not enter if you feel sick, are sneezing, coughing, have a fever, shortness of breath, runny nose or sore throat. 
  • Please sanitize and/or wash your hands in our restroom before entering the gathering/ceremonial space to visit with family members. 
  • Please refrain from shaking hands or offering hugs to anyone. 
  • During Visitation, no more than 10 people will be allowed in the gathering space with the family. 
  • No more than 10 people will be seated with the family during their service.
  • Practice social distancing - no closer than 6' apart 
Finally, this unprecedented period is rapidly unfolding and we are diligently working to cooperate with government restrictions to ensure the needs of our families are being met. Your cooperation in this matter is deeply appreciated as we all make little sacrifices to protect and care for those we love.
