Obituary of Update - June 5th Coronavirus

Effective June 5th, provincial guidelines now allow up to 50 to attend a funeral service. We are currently working with families to create meaningful tributes for those who have experienced the recent loss of a loved one. Our operational plan includes some strict procedures for funeral services at Hogg Funeral & Cremation Services. (Minto/Chipman) 1. Funeral services offered at this time are by invite only. Families are required to submit a list of all attendees with phone numbers and contact information. All those attending are required to complete and submit an Active Screening Protocol provided upon entering. The use of an infrared thermometer will be employed. 2. Physical distancing practices (6 meters) are a vital part of this new stage. To ensure that everyone remains safe and that further outbreaks don’t cause tighter restrictions. 3. For the safety of all involved, we insist on the use of a mask at all times when visiting our funeral home. 4. Physical contact … unfortunately, hugs and handshakes - will remain forbidden for now. 5. We do have the ability to provide live streaming of services for those who are unable to attend funerals and visitations in our Chapel. 6. Currently, under provincial guidelines, the serving of and consuming food and beverages in our facility is not permitted. If you have questions about these new provincial guidelines as the province begins to reopen or about funeral services, please contact us. (506) 327-3490.
