The COVID-19 Plan
Thank you for choosing Dyson’s Home for Funerals to serve your family during
your time of need. We take the safety and health of your family very seriously. We
always strive to exceed the expectations of every family and will continue to do so
during this challenging time. Please feel confident that we have taken extra
precautions to ensure our facility is sanitized and safe to visit.
Please help us keep our facility safe and clean by observing the following
1. If you are sick, please do not visit the funeral home. This includes nausea,
vomiting, cough, fever, chills, sweats, fatigue or any other symptoms that indicate
you are not well. The bereaved family will be happy to hear from you by phone,
electronic or other condolences.
2. Please wash your hands frequently. Use hand sanitizer upon entry and exit of the
funeral home. It is recommended that you bring your personal hand sanitizer, facial
masks, and nitrile gloves, if needed.
3. The Governor of South Carolina advises to limit public gatherings to 50 guests or
less to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Dyson’s Home for Funerals carefully
considered this recommendation and adopted it into practice effective immediately
for funeral services.
4. To accommodate the 50-guest limit, you will be asked to restrict your funeral
service to immediate family and close friends.
5. If more than 50 people want to attend the funeral service, please note that a
family representative will be appointed to manage the guest list. Additional guests
can be invited to participate via live-streaming if it is authorized by the family.
6. The CDC advises to limit gatherings to 10 people or less. The initial viewing for
your loved one should be limited to immediate family only. Public viewings will
follow this recommendation. No more than ten people at a time will be allowed in the
funeral home for viewing. We are asking our families to help us communicate this to
close friends and acquaintances.
7. If anyone in your family is ill, please ask them to stay home during the funeral
service. We understand this is a difficult request; however, it is imperative that we
take every precaution to prevent the spread of illness and disease.
8. We strongly recommend that all persons continue to follow the guidelines of
social distancing; refraining from shaking hands, hugging, and kissing.
9. Please note that these are recommendations adopted by Dyson’s Home for
Funerals. Please remember that your attendance at any funeral service or public
gathering is at YOUR OWN RISK.
The Dyson’s Home for Funerals Staff will go above and beyond to accommodate
your requests and exceed your expectations. Still, we need your help. COVID-19 is
sweeping the nation and is requiring our immediate attention and adjustments in the
way we manage our services. Please be considerate of this and help us as we try to
keep our families, staff and facility safe.
