Chapel of Angels Funeral Home, in order to protect the families that we serve, the community we love and our staff, will be following the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) guidelines for crowds/gatherings. The Governor of the State of Mississippi, in conjunction with CDC recommendations, has signed an order to reduce the maximum number of people allowed in any crowd or gathering to 10 people. Due to the Coronavirus disease/Covid-19, the service has been restricted to immediate family and selected, extended family members only. Working together with the family, and because of the CDC’s reduction of crowd size, we thank you all for you understanding during these trying times.
All attendees will also be expected to follow the CDC’s guidelines for social distancing. This means not getting closer than six feet (6ft) to any other person in attendance. Most importantly, there should also be no customary handshaking or hugging. This is for your individual safety. This is for the safety of the family. This is for the safety of everyone we will all come in contact with once we leave to go our separate ways. We know these constraints are unpleasant, difficult and sometimes painful to bear. Please remember, the Coronavirus Disease/ Covid-19 does not care if we understand it; it does not care if we like the conditions we find ourselves in or if we follow the guidelines given, it will try to sicken every person it has the opportunity to infect without discrimination or favor. Please help us keep this family, our staff, our community and you, as safe as possible. We thank you all for your cooperation. If the CDC, federal, state or local government makes any additional, mandatory changes, we will update this information accordingly. May God bless, keep and have mercy upon us all.
