Effective June 26, 2020
Please note, during this imposed GREEN Phase Order of caution and social distancing set forth by Governor Wolf due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the LONGWOOD FUNERAL HOME & CREMATION of Matthew Genereux will continue to offer live-stream audio-visual funeral home viewings and services, graveside funerals and arrangements.
Face masks and continued social distancing are set forth within the order.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention statement regarding COVID-19, “There is currently no known risk associated with being in the same room at a funeral or visitation service with the body of someone who died of COVID-19," the CDC said.
The virus that causes COVID-19 is thought to mainly spread from close contact (i.e., within about 6 feet) with a person who is sick with COVID-19. The virus likely spreads primarily through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes, similar to how influenza and other respiratory infections spread. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs. This type of spread is not a concern after death.
We will continue to be available at anytime to care for families in need.
