COVID-19 UPDATE: EFFECTIVE December 7, 2020

As of December 7, 2020, Due to the increase of cases and deaths in Arkansas, we have limited services to 50% Capacity and this will apply to all indoor services, whether at a funeral home chapel or a place of worship.
Graveside services, do not have a numerical limit. Masks or other facial covering must be worn and Social Distancing must be maintained.
All attendees must sign an attendance form of each funeral service and we will keep a copy of the attendance form for 30 days following the service. It will be made available to the Arkansas Department of Health upon request.

Face masks are required for ALL attending. (10 years old and up)
Anyone passing or receiving any items (microphones, certificates or mementos) will wear gloves.
No physical contact will be permitted between mourners and the decedent,
when it is suspected or confirmed that the decedent was positive for Covid-19 at the time of death.
While permitted to sit in family groups, all individuals present will be required to sit 6-feet apart from other family groups.
Guests are to maintain social distancing from the family when offering their condolences.
All rules for the funeral service also apply to the visitations.
Consequently, funeral homes should keep visitations limited to the smallest gathering of family members possible.
