Our Response to Covid-19
With the CDC’s recommendation to limit gatherings to 10 people, Bruzek Funeral Home will follow these guidelines as we face these challenging times. We are committed to helping families on an individual basis to create meaningful services that fall within the guidelines set. Assisting families is a privilege and honor and we know grief does not take a hiatus nor can it be shelved. It is important to honor the lives of those that we love and we are committed to insure that this can happen, while safely keeping families, friends, and our staff safe in these challenging times. We continue to be open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We ask that we all take the guidelines seriously as we are “in this together” as a community. If you are experiencing any signs of illness, we ask that you stay home and do not attend any services or gatherings for the next few weeks. Reach out to the funeral home and we will be willing to share your condolences with the family in appropriate ways. As this pandemic unfolds, we are exploring creative ways to meet the very serious needs of grieving families and friends. We are your neighbors and friends and live and work in this community along with you. As people are forced to create services far different from what would occur during a “normal” time, we are sensitive to the reality that basic needs of touch and community contact may not be able to happen. We are, above all, incredibly honored to serve this amazing community and are taking this pandemic seriously.
