*COVID-19 (Coronavirus)*

Cease Family Funeral Homes has been closely monitoring the COVID-19/ (Coronavirus) pandemic as our nation braces for the challenges that lie ahead.  We will be following the guidelines set by the Minnesota Department of Health, the CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention), the National Funeral Directors Association, the Minnesota Funeral Directors Association, our Minnesota Governor and the White House.

As of  3/27/20 at 11:59pm, The Minnesota Department of Health recommends that Funeral Homes postpone any type of services until the current public health concerns and guidelines improve. The MDH has also recommended, when possible, that any communication be done electronically or over the phone.  Though there may be temporary limitations or postponements on group gatherings and social distancing, we will help guide you to the best possible memorialization solution for your family.  Our website and Facebook page, both offer ways to share a condolence, sign an online guestbook, light a candle or share a memory.  When available, we would be happy to send a service/memorial bulletin to you in the mail at this time. Also, you can also mail a memorial gift to the funeral home directly and we will forward it to the family.  In some circumstances we may have the ability to Live Stream or record the service so you could watch it from home. We can also make funeral arrangements over the phone or online if you do not want to come to our office.  

Our communities and the families that we serve are very important to us!   If you consider yourself to be in a high risk group, have a compromised respiratory or immune system, heart or kidney disease, are pregnant or are elderly, please limit any possible exposure to infection at home and don't travel in the public.  If you have traveled or live in any infected areas, feel ill with cold or flu-like symptoms, a fever, respiratory congestion/cough or the sniffles, Please stay home. Our communities do not want to spread any infections.  We want you all to be well and safe, as well as our staff and the public.

Cease Family Funeral Homes will be taking some additional precautions as well.  In certain locations we may be reducing our office hours from 10:00 - 2:00 p.m. - Monday through Friday; however, our phone is answered 24 hours a day 7 days a week.  We ask that if you do need to come to the funeral home for any reason, please make an appointment. Also, we will not be serving any food or lunches at any of the funeral home locations to help prevent the spread of any disease. 

Please remember that our commitment to your family will remain unchanged.  We will be here at your time of need and will help you arrange for memorializations as needed.   

Cease Family Funeral Homes will continue to update you on the developments surrounding the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic as information and guidelines may change quickly. We have provided some links below to help better understand information about this pandemic.
