COVID-19 UPDATE & NEWS RELEASE

Light Memorial & Funeral Chapel will remain committed, prepared and available 24/7 to safely care for the families we serve during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are monitoring protocols and recommendations from the CDC closely. 

*****NEWS RELEASED IN MORGAN COUNT****


As of March 17th, 2020,
Governor Holcomb released this statement

“Indiana will adhere to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for large events and mass gatherings.” The guidance recommends no in-person events of more than 50 people. And, the CDC added this to the attendance recommendation, “For organizations that serve people who are at a higher risk of serious COVID-19 illness, we suggest you cancel events for groups of 10 people or more.”

In an effort to suppress the spread of the COVID-19 virus, Morgan County funeral directors and funeral home owners from Light Memorial & Funeral Chapel in Monrovia, Jones Family Mortuary of Mooresville, Neal & Summers Funeral and Cremation Center and Costin Funeral Chapel both of Martinsville have taken a collaborative approach to adhere to the mandates and protocols set forth by our federal government, the Center for Disease Control, “CDC”, and the State of Indiana’s official emergency declaration to the Coronavirus-COVID19. Our unified decision is a representation of our professional and lawful responsibility to our communities and families, to protect the public health and welfare, as well as, continue to provide proper care of the deceased and compassion to those who grieve. 

With a deep respect for our families and staff and in caring for our communities, we will follow the Governor’s definition and consider visitation, funeral and memorial services to be non-essential gatherings that are applicable to the latest CDC recommendation…
"Canceling events for groups of 10 people or more”, immediately. 

 
At this time, the four funeral homes listed above will NOT be hosting  PUBLIC GATHERINGS;  However, each will be independently and diligently accommodating with our families to provide the same dignified service and compassionate care you have all come to know and expect. Your funeral director will assist you in arranging private, family services now, with alternatives utilizing available live streaming options via Facebook and scheduling public events at a later date.
By working together professionally and as a community, we can accomplish great things… “United we stand, divided we fall.”   -Abraham Lincoln

We will also be doing our part to suppress the spread of the COVID-19 virus internally by practicing heightened personal protectionand frequent disinfection of doorknobs, light switches, restrooms, and other areas within the funeral home. Anyone experiencing cold or flu-like symptoms including fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, unusual body aches, and/or nausea or has been in contact with anyone experiencing any of these symptoms, please refrain from visiting the funeral home at this time.Additionally, we ask that you please follow the safety guidelines below:- Please refrain from visiting the funeral home if you have traveled out of the U.S., been on a cruise ship or airline within the past eight (8) weeks.- Please exercise social distancing as suggested by the CDC and remain 6 feet away from one another.- Please avoid shaking hands, giving hugs, or any physical contact with the members of the family or other guests while visiting the funeral home and elsewhere.

Respectfully,
Savanah S. Light & family
