Guidance on Funerals and Burials in NYC during the COVID-19 Crisis
All New Yorkers deserve to celebrate, honor, and memorialize their loved ones. Even as we make arrangements for our loved ones who have passed, we must continue to practice social distancing, good hand hygiene, and infection prevention. If you are sick, you must stay home and refrain from attending the funerial service, viewing, and burial. By staying home, you help slow the spread of COVID-19 and protect others from getting sick.
