Levinson's Response to COVID-19

We are living in exceptional and challenging times and, as you know, we at Levinson's take the current situation very seriously. We are working diligently to reduce exposure to both families and staff, our goal will always be to provide compassionate funeral service to all those we serve. 
 
Funerals are a fundamental part of a healthy grieving process. While there are certain restrictions right now, we urge you and your families to focus on the importance of what can be done, and to make use of the power of modern technology. Please see below for upcoming events, resources and information regarding our services.

The Funeral

Levinson’s is actively working to do everything possible to ensure meaningful services out of respect for the deceased and for their family.  Using one of our chapels will provide those unable to attend to view the service as it is happening.

Our Chapels

  • We have both our indoor main chapel and outdoor chapel available for services

  • Attendance will be limited to approximately 100 members of the family and friends in our main chapel and 50 in our side chapel, this does not include our team or clergy officiating the service

  • Live streaming cameras have been upgraded to HD cameras, to enhance the quality of streaming for family and friends watching from home

  • Masks are always required

  • Social distancing is required, and seating will be spaced out to keep everyone safe

  • Our HVAC system has been upgraded with special filters and will stay on constantly to circulate air through that filtration

  • Between services we will be thoroughly cleaning the bathrooms and chapel, as we already do when services are held outside

  • As always, we are following CDC guidelines and ask, for everyone’s safety, that people not attend services in person if they: 

    • Have any symptoms of COVID (whether vaccinated or not)

    • Have been diagnosed with COVID and are within the CDC’s stated timeframe for remaining isolated

    • Are unvaccinated and have a known close contact with someone who has tested positive
