Winnebago County and State of Illinois COVID-19 and How It Affects Funeral Visitations and Services


As of 08/30/2021, Illinois' reinstated mask mandate takes effective Monday, August 30, 2021, requiring residents over the age of 2 to wear face coverings in indoor settings. The new indoor mask guidelines will require facial coverings in indoor settings, regardless of COVID vaccination status.

Governor Pritzker noted that while face coverings are not required outdoors, "masks are strongly encourgaged in crowded outdoor settings like festivals and concerts as well as for activities that require close contact with people who are not vaccinated."

The governor said the mandate applies "IN ALL INDOOR SETTINGS."

By following these protocols, our hope is to help protect the health care resources of the community,the families we serve, and our team of funeral professionals.


Thank you for understanding.
