To our entire community,
 
We are living in exceptional and challenging times and, as you know, we at Levinson's take the current situation very seriously. Our goal will always be to provide compassionate funeral service to all those we serve. 
 
We continue to maintain communication with the appropriate authorities and agencies, and Based on Governor Hogan's recent Executive Order, we have implemented the following changes to help reduce COVID-19 exposure to both families and staff:
 
  • All funeral services are being conducted at the graveside with a limit of 10 people including the clergy and our funeral director
  • For the health and safety of your family and our employees, services are limited to the immediate family only
  • Social distancing measures will be encouraged
  • Shovels will not be used at this time (gloves will be provided)
  • A video recording of the graveside service will be offered and provided to the family
  • An opportunity to gather with the community for a memorial service at Levinson's will be offered to every family (once the health risk has passed)
  • Funeral directors have been asked to conduct arrangements with families over the phone when possible
  • We have reduced in-person meetings and are utilizing virtual meeting tools when appropriate
 
Levinson's is also working on a "Virtual Shiva" option that will allow families to receive visitors offering condolences online. In the meantime, please continue to support grieving families by offering condolences on the online memorial book and visiting their shiva page, where you can honor their memory by planting a tree in Israel. 
 
As always, please don't hesitate to call us regarding anything urgent. However, we ask that you understand that we are working in shifts and many of our staff members are working remotely, so some things may take additional time. If your question is not extremely time-sensitive, please reach out to us via email and we will reply as soon as we can. 
 
We encourage everyone to follow us on Facebook. Our Facebook page will be used to post resources for grieving families, as well as ongoing updates about additional resources as they become available.
 
We appreciate your patience as we all work to get through this.
