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:
family funerals of 8 or less, including clergy, will be held in our chapels and
live streamed on our website.
and friends can leave comments on the deceased tribute wall.

maximum amount of attendees.

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.
