Effective Immediately: COVID – 19 Virus Update
March 27, 2020 4:00 p.m.
The staff at B. Wilson’s Funeral Chapels – Lacombe and Rimbey - are still as available as we always were. You can still call us to make funeral arrangements or to ask questions, and we will still actively have staff at the office Monday to Friday. We are doing our best to meet the requirements put forward by the Chief Medical Officer of Health, while doing our best to respect the needs of your family.
Based on the understanding that we all have a responsibility to minimize contact and help to contain the outbreak of Covid-19 virus, B. Wilson’s Funeral Chapel Ltd. – Lacombe and Rimbey - has opted to adhere to the restrictions brought forward by the Chief Medical Officer of Health. It is crucial at this time that we all participate in protecting our community, surrounding areas, and all their members.
We will not be meeting directly with individuals who are experiencing flu-like symptoms, or have recently returned from out of country, to make funeral arrangements. We will consider phone calls, or emails as a means of completing funeral arrangements, and in-person appointments will be limited to a maximum of three people.
We will be following the guideline put forward to limit all funeral services to private, family, invitational events of up to 15 people, and only in places that accommodate appropriate social distancing. We are unable to participate in any funeral matters that breach the amount of people attending that have been recommended, along with locations that do not satisfy the required 6 feet allowance for social distancing. We will be postponing large funerals until the Chief Medical Officer’s restrictions are lifted.
No provision of food and beverages for fellowship will be co-ordinated by the funeral home, or its employees.
We will update our website if any changes to this protocol have been amended or lifted.
For questions, please call (403) 782-3366.
Thank you for your understanding and patience during the unknown, upcoming days.
