To entire community we serve:

As the owner of Moss Family Funeral Homes, I continually monitor the guidance and directives from local state and national health agencies to help mitigate the spread of the coronavirus in our communities and the greater United States.  I must inform you of additional measures being taken.  These measures are in the response and the directives given by the Center for Disease Control and communicated to us from the National Funeral Directors Association and the Illinois Funeral Directors Association.  Moving forward, visitations with open casket viewing are still safe to attend.  However, the following protocols will be put into place. 

  • No public announced funerals, memorial services or visitations at this current time
  • Services will be held on an invite only list agreed upon by the family we serve
  • Private family services, visitation or body viewing need to be kept to the immediate family only, recommended at ten (10) or less people
  • Viewings will only be conducted on bodies that have been embalmed and will only be permissive with ten (10) or less people 
  • Graveside services should also be limited to ten (10) or less people.
  • The use of funeral home facilities will be limited to one family service at a time
  • Until further notice the use of the community rooms for food and beverage will be closed

Churches are implementing their own safety procedures which we have closely monitored and continue to follow their guidelines.

When entering the funeral home, it is recommended every visitor properly sanitizes their hands with available liquid sanitizer.    

Social distancing is a must, please keep a distance from others of 3-6 feet, avoid physical condolences, no handshakes, no hugs. 

If you have felt symptoms of fever, cough, headache or shortness of breath please do not enter the funeral home or have direct contact with others.  Contact the family later and express your condolences. 

Moss Family Funeral Homes are doing all that we can to assure a safe visit to our facilities, by routinely cleaning and sanitizing our restrooms, door handles and commonly touched surfaces. 

During these unusual difficult times, Moss Family Funeral Homes is committed to carrying out the strong family traditions of honoring the lives of those we love.  We will continue to monitor the situation and make proper adjustments as we move forward. 

Blessings, 

Bryan W. Moss
