A Message from the Caldwell & Cowan Funeral Home Family
COVID-19 UPDATE, JUNE 1, 2020: At Caldwell & Cowan Funeral Home, it is our honor to serve the families within the Covington/Newton County community and surrounding areas. Our team is taking every precaution to keep the families we serve and our employees safe and healthy.
We are adhering to guidelines from the CDC and the recent Executive Order issued by Governor Kemp advising that all public gatherings should be limited to no more than fifty (50) people. This means no more than fifty (50) people in the Funeral Home at one time. This restriction applies to visitation times and to funeral or memorial services. Immediate Family Members only should attend the arrangement conference.
We have the ability to stream funeral and memorial services, which will enable those who cannot attend, or who do not wish to risk exposure, to be able to see and hear the service online.
We understand that funerals and visitations are very important events and provide a great source of healing to all of those who attend. Sadly, with the situation in our country and the world with the spread of COVID-19, sacrifices must be made for the safety, wellness and protection of everyone.
We greatly appreciate your understanding and cooperation. Thank you.
GRIEF SUPPORT DURING QUARANTINE
During this time of quarantine, many people find themselves isolated and lonely. These feelings only serve to compound the grief we feel over the death of someone close to us. Over the past 10 years we have provided in-person grief support to our community and during this time we are having to find new ways to provide that care.
We have started an Online Grief Community on Facebook HERE. Please find us, answer the simple questions, and agree to our rules of privacy and you will be permitted access to this growing online group of grievers.
We will also be planning video or teleconferencing options for grief support as the quarantine continues and this information will be posted in this online group.
