*CDC Information- At this time, the CDC states that decedents with COVID-19 may be buried or cremated according to the family's preferences. They state that there is currently no known risk associated with being in the same room at a funeral home with the body of someone who has died of COVID-19. However, the CDC states that people may consider not touching the body of someone who has died of COVID-19.
