GUIDELINES: As We Gather Together
COVID-19 and Evergreen Funeral Home Guidelines
UPDATED 08/02/2021

When family and friends are grieving, it is important to be able to provide support to them. As we gather together as community at Evergreen Funeral Home, how we will do that will look different.

We will follow guidelines/expectations set forth by our county, state, and federal authorities. Those guidelines will determine the number of individuals allowed to gather depending upon the type of the visitation, celebration, and/or service being held. 

We ask that you adhere to the following guidelines we developed in accordance with orders, guidelines, recommendations and/or expectations set forth by local, state, and federal government and health authorities.

  • Face Masks (per release dated 7/31/2021 from the Eau Claire City-County Health Department)

    "In alignment with CDC and WI Department of Health Services, the Eau Claire City-County Health Department is now providing the following mask guidance for Eau Claire County:
    Everyone, age 2+, is expected to wear a mask in public indoor settings, even if they have been vaccinated.
    Unvaccinated people age 12+ should also consider getting vaccinated - this will make a difference." 

    Even though this is not a mandate, we want to keep the families we are serving, other individuals, our staff, and our community safe and healthy. Families and individuals gather here from all parts of Wisconsin and other states for visitations and services where COVID-19 statistics and vaccination rates vary, thus why wearing a mask is expected. We do reserve the right to enforce a mask mandate, if requested by the family we are serving. All our staff will be wearing masks even though we are fully vaccinated.

  • Social Distancing. We have rearranged our public space to allow for social distancing. For the safety and comfort of all individuals, please maintain a 6' distance between yourself and others. Also, please refrain from personal contact - hugging/shaking hands. Please read and follow all posted signage. This also applies if you are outside on our property.
  • Limit the number in your party. The guidelines we follow will determine the number of individuals who are in our building at one time. Limiting the number in your party will allow for more families/individuals to pay their respect. Also, please refrain from bringing small children if possible.
  • Limit your time. When coming for any type of gathering or service, please keep your time with the family to a minimum and exit the premises in a timely manner. Please do not linger inside or outside the building.
  • Not Feeling Well. If you are not feeling well for ANY reason, please refrain from coming
