Hillsboro Funeral Home & COVID-19

At Hillsboro Funeral Home we are taking the health and safety of our staff and the community we serve very seriously. We know the value of honoring the loved ones in our community and we will make every possible effort to help you do this within this current situation. Your loved one, family members, our staff and the public at large are our priority and we will be doing what we can through extra cleaning and sanitizing throughout our funeral home to make it safe for those who enter. Due to the current outbreak of COVID-19 we are no longer operating on regular business hours and by appointment only. We are requesting that any non-essential services that can wait until another time, following this outbreak be put off until these restrictions have been lifted. As always, if immediate we will be here for you but by appointment only and with a restricted number of family members that may attend the arrangement conference. Please do not come to our funeral home if you are feeling ill or if you have been in contact with anyone who may have been in contact with the virus. The following is an Order that has been given to funeral homes across Prince Edward Island by the Chief Public Health Office on March 17, 2020 and revised on April 2, 2020. Hillsboro Funeral Home will be following the direction from their office until further notice. Thank you in this effort to help contain the spread of COVID-19. 
 
Shawn MacLean and Staff of Hillsboro Funeral Home
 
It is important to recognize this important ritual in our community and among our family and friends. However, to help prevent the spread of illness the following Orders are set forth by the Chief Public Health Office: 
1. Limit the number of family members making visitation/funeral/memorial arrangements to no more than 4 persons;
2. Restrict visiting hours and burials to no more than 5 persons (and continue to practice social distancing and hygiene safety);
3. Delay or postpone in-person funeral and/or memorial services to avoid mass gatherings and ensure social distancing;
4. Refrain from in-person signing of the Guest Book and taking Memorials/Donations. Instead, use online mechanisms for people to offer condolences and give memorials/donations;
5. Cancel and abstain from hosting all public receptions;
6. Staff in Long-term Care facilities and Nursing Homes should refrain from creating receiving lines to honour the decendent; and
7. In all circumstance, increase interpersonal and social distancing (ensure a separation of 2-meters or 6 feet and do not permit shaking hands, hugging, etc.)
