COVID-19 update concerning the conducting of funerals:
Effective from Friday 29th May 2020 the Minister for Health and Medical Research, Brad Hazzard, MP, under section 7 of the Public Health Act 2010 has issued the following directions in relation to funerals:
A gathering for a funeral service or memorial service (indoor or outdoor) or a gathering immediately after a funeral or memorial service (indoor or outdoor), at which there are no more than 50 people, excluding the persons necessary for the conduct of, or assisting in the conduct of, the service or gathering, including, for example the funeral celebrant or minister of religion and the funeral director.
In summary, the restrictions now allow for 50 people to attend a funeral either indoors or outdoors with strict social distancing and the 4sqm rule applying. Each Church and/or indoor venue will have its own rules and restrictions in place regarding attendance at funerals and it will be necessary for us to liaise with them individually.
A person at a funeral, memorial service, or a gathering immediately after a funeral or memorial service must provide the person’s name and contact details, including a telephone number and email address to the relevant person conducting the service. This information will be retained by us and only released to Government Health Authorities in the event that "contract tracing" following a confirmed case of COVID-19 among attendees is identified. We are committed to maintaining the confidentiality and privacy of all persons we interact with.
Our staff will ask funeral attendees the following questions:
Are you required to self-isolate due to your travel history?
In the past 14 days, have you had or are you aware of any close contact with someone who has been diagnosed with or suspected of having COVID-19?
Do you have any flu like symptoms or any reason to suspect that you may have COVID-19?
We will then record your Full Name and Phone Number and email address.
We thank you for your understanding and co-operation as we navigate this unprecedented world health crisis.
Our professional team at Muswellbrook and Scone Funeral Services are dedicated and committed to providing you with caring, compassionate support and guiding you through not only the decision making process associated with funeral arrangements but with the continually changing government advice in relation to the conducting of funerals as we face this unprecedented world health crisis.
Please note due to COVID-19 there is a limit of 50 people able to attend a Funeral Service. It is recommended that you contact the family if you wish to attend a funeral service.
Thank you for your compassion and understanding.
