Winnebago County CoVid-19 Announcement and

How It Affects Funeral Visitations and Services


As of 3/19/2020, the Winnebago County Health Department enacted “Community Mitigation Controls,” indefinitely suspending all public events with over 10 people. When posted online or in the paper, funerals become a “public event” and we are forced to adhere to this new protocol. For the foreseeable future, any planned funeral, memorial, and graveside services will be restricted to family or private invite only.

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.
