In an effort to suppress the spread of the COVID-19 virus, Cuddie Funeral Home has taken a collaborative approach to adhere to the mandates and protocols set forth by our federal government, the Center for Disease Control, “CDC”, and the State of Wisconsin. Our decision is a representation of our professional and lawful responsibility to our communities and families, to protect the public’s health and welfare, as well as, to continue to provide proper care of the deceased and compassion to those who grieve. As of 5pm on Tuesday, March 17, 2020, Governor Tony Evers and the State Department of Health Services have ordered and prohibit the gathering of 10 or more people in public places.
Funeral services are included in public gatherings, which means that this will temporarily alter the way we conduct public funeral ceremonies. As of now, we plan on strongly suggesting families postpone their funerals until these limitations are lifted. For families who do not want to wait, we will be suggesting they keep funerals to immediate family and close friends of 10 people or fewer.
With deep respect for our families, and in caring for our communities, we will follow these guidelines and consider visitation, and funeral and memorial services to be non-essential gatherings that are applicable to the latest CDC recommendation of canceling events for groups of 10 or more people.
Additionally, we ask that you follow the safety guidelines below:
This is a serious time in our nation; one that deserves and demands serious action. Your cooperation in this matter is deeply appreciated as we all make little sacrifices to protect and care for those we love.
Thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation.
The Staff of Cuddie Funeral Home
