Facts about Funerals and COVID-19

As of 04/19/2021

Cropo Funeral Chapel prioritizes the health and well-being of our staff and guests. We understand this is a fluid situation and are monitoring and evaluating developments of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

We still believe that gathering and supporting one another at a time of loss is important. Together with families, We will abide by the Province of Manitoba’s restrictions on public gathering groups of 10 or less people with outdoor gatherings of 10 as well. We can accommodate service gatherings of 10 total in Sir. Thomas Chapel with Live Stream available.  Masks will be required in all public spaces. All services currently scheduled will proceed, unless a family requests to reschedule or cancel. However, the majority of our funerals are smaller gatherings than this and we anticipate that attendance at services will decrease due to public awareness regarding the pandemic. We ask those at risk or those not feeling well to stay home. We encourage the community to reach out to each family via their Tribute Page on cropo.com. If you are attending services, please follow the Public Health Agency of Canada regulations below. 

We encourage you to follow the PHAC recommendations to take the usual steps to help prevent the spread of illness:

Wash your hands frequently with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available-based hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol

·       Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands

·       Cover your coughs and sneezes with your arm or inner elbow

·       Avoid close contact with sick people

·       Stay home when you are sick or not feeling well 

At Cropo Funeral Chapel we can offer video a recording of the service that can be available publicly or privately. Ask about a live stream option as well. 

In addition to communicating best health and safety practices to our staff and guests, Cropo has implemented enhanced cleaning throughout our locations:

·       Staff have been reminded of and encouraged to use good hand hygiene and cough etiquette habits

·       Heightened daily disinfection practices for high-touch surfaces
