Visiting Washington Park Cemetery Association
While the COVID-19 virus requires all of us to be more mindful as we go through our regular activities, rest assured that our locations are clean and safe. Even before this crisis we have maintained health and safety measures designed to address a broad spectrum of viruses – now this includes COVID-19. Our protocols cover everything from hand washing hygiene, cleaning product specifications, ventilation, equipment and common area cleaning procedures.
Making Funeral Arrangements
If a death has occurred, or will soon, we are very sorry for your loss. If you are unable to make it to one of our locations due to travel restrictions, health concerns or any other reason, our caring staff can help you accomplish everything virtually and/or by phone. Every situation can and will be accommodated.
Recommendations for visitors
Please follow the CDC recommendations and wear a cloth face cover when visiting our locations and follow social distancing guidelines. If you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 please do not attend service events until after a minimum of 20 days of quarantine. If you are planning for a loved one that was infected or exposed, please notify our staff by phone at the earliest opportunity, before visiting a location.
Losing a friend or family member is never easy. We are aware that these unsettling times can amplify feelings of grief and anxiety. Please know that we are here for anything you may need to honor life, support loved ones and begin the healing process.
The safety and well-being of you, your family, and your friends is of the utmost importance. Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at: (317) 387-7000. We are available 24/7.
