Throughout Ontario, funerals are being postponed due to limits on gatherings. Should a family want to put their loved one to rest, we are allowing an opportunity for that to happen with strict restrictions. These temporary changes are set as per precautionary measures from the Moose Factory Emergency Pandemic Team.
All funerals will take place under the blue/white tent. Our Public Works team will have this set up on the lot formerly used by Nishnawbe-Aski Police Services (beside the old St. Thomas Anglican Church).
These recommendations are also there to protect the health and safety of those conducting the services as well as the workers assisting with funeral preparations; they are vital to our community.
We understand that losing a loved one is a very difficult loss to endure and being surrounded closely by family and friends helps those in their loss and grieving. However, due to the seriousness of this coronavirus, we need to be the voice in this situation and look out for your safety and well-being. We pray that our community does not endure any losses from this virus.
We must continue to work together as a community and do our part to stop the spread of this virus amongst us.
If you have any questions regarding funeral arrangements and preparations, you can contact Rose Blackned, Community Liaison Worker, at 705-288-1863.
Thank you for your cooperation during these difficult times.
