What are we doing to keep you and our employees safe?

J.T. Morriss & Son prioritizes the health and well-being of its associates, families, and communities that we serve. We are closely monitoring and evaluating developments of the coronavirus (COVID-19). Based on information provided by the CDC, NFDA, VFDA, and the Commonwealth of Virginia, we are taking precautions to protect everyone.

We still believe that gathering and supporting one another at a time of loss is important. The Commonwealth of Virginia has instituted a ban on all gatherings of more than 10 people. In order to abide by that we are instituting the following guidelines:

  • Private family funerals of 8 or less, including clergy, will be held in our chapels and live streamed on our website.
  • Family and friends can leave comments on the deceased tribute wall.
  • Private family gatherings can be held in the funeral home with 8 or fewer guests for 30 minutes.
  • Gatherings and services will have a limited number of associates to allow the family the maximum amount of attendees.
  • We are offering remote or virtual arrangement conferences for families.
  • We ask that family members that don’t feel well to stay home.

We want to assure you that the J.T. Morriss team is taking proactive measures to help prevent the spread of any potential illness. We are closely monitoring the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and World Health Organization’s statements, along with Virginia Department of Health Services,
regarding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) cases and following guidelines from these agencies and our local health departments.

  • We use cleaning and disinfecting protocols to clean our chapels, lounge and restrooms before and after each service with particular attention paid to high touch items like knobs, faucets, chairs and other communal areas.
  • Proper and frequent hand washing is vital to help combat the spread of viruses. Our teams are reminded multiple times a day that cleanliness starts with this simple act.
  • Employees who exhibit cold or flu-like symptoms have been instructed to stay home from work.

If you have any questions about the funeral home operations, please feel free to contact our management team through [email protected]
