Covid 19 Policy & Guidelines

Effective Date: May 18, 2020

Directive Regarding Large Indoor Venues

The Secretary of Health, in consultation with the Governor, has sole authority over all instances of quarantine, isolation, and restrictions on commerce and travel throughout Arkansas, as necessary and appropriate to control disease in the state of Arkansas as authorized by Ark. Code Ann. §20-7-109--110. Based on available scientific evidence, it is necessary and appropriate to take further action to ensure that COVID-19 remains controlled and that residents and visitors in Arkansas remain safe.

This directive covers indoor venues for commercial, community, or civic events and activities where an audience, spectators, or a gathering of people are present, such as at concerts, plays, movies, lectures, presentations, conferences, conventions, sporting events, races, fundraisers, trade shows, and festivals.

Examples of such venues include auditoriums, lecture halls, movie theatres, other theatres, museums, arenas, sports venues, race tracks, stadiums, gymnasiums, auction houses, amusement centers, barns, exhibit halls, conventions centers, and funeral homes. Examples also include recreational facilities, such as bowling alleys and trampoline parks.

Gatherings subject to this directive also include, without limitation, community, civic, public, leisure, commercial, or sporting events.

This directive is not intended for places of worship. 


The minister/singers and funeral home staff must be separated from the audience by at least 12 feet.

An audience of fifty (50) people or fewer is allowed. 

Lines for entrance, exit, making purchases, or for other reasons must be marked or monitored for maintaining a distance of 6 feet between people.  

Seating must be arranged to maintain a 6-foot distance between members of the audience. 

Family groups may sit together but 6 feet should be maintained between groups. 

Every other row seating should be unoccupied to provide for 6 feet of physical distancing.  

 Face coverings are required for all persons present, except for children under 10 years of age, who are exempt. 

Minister/singers and funeral home staff may be without a face covering if they are 12 feet from other persons. 

Signs must be posted at all entrances advising the public not to enter if: 

They have fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, or loss of taste or smell. 

They have had known exposure to someone with Covid-19 in the past 14 days. 

Signs must be posted at all entrances advising the public that they may wish to refrain from entering if: 

They are 65 years of age or older. 

They have underlying health conditions including high blood pressure, chronic lung disease, diabetes, severe obesity, asthma or weakened immunity.  

Hand sanitizer stations must be available at all entrances and exits.  

The facility, including seating, shall be cleaned and disinfected before and after each use. Frequently touched surfaces shall be cleaned periodically during the course of the event.

MEMORIAL SERVICE

Just like a funeral service, a memorial service is a time to remember your loved one. This can be held shortly after death or weeks later, with or without an urn present. What’s important is that it creates a time and a place for family and friends to gather together and support one another, share memories and pay their respects. We can hold a memorial service at our funeral home, the final resting place or at your home.

BURIAL

A casket burial is a traditional service and there are many options you can choose from. We can provide an immediate burial without a public service; a visitation, viewing or wake with a closed or open casket; a funeral service at our funeral home, church or private home and a graveside service at a cemetery. You can choose whether you’d like a public or private service or a combination. It is entirely up to you how you wish to pay your respects.

CREMATION

Cremation has become a popular option for many people because it can be more flexible as to where and when you hold a service. You can have a traditional funeral service before a cremation or a memorial service at any time with or without the urn present. You can keep the urn, scatter the ashes or have the urn buried in a grave or columbarium where we can hold a service. Whether you choose burial or cremation, we’re here to offer you a meaningful ceremony.
