Important Statement on COVID-19 and Kentucky Funeral Service.

Published: March 19, 2020

During his Tuesday, March 17, 2020 daily Press Conference, Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear specifically addressed Funerals in Kentucky.  He stated that he knows these are difficult decisions to make and yes it’s hard on the families that have lost loved ones but this has to be done to protect the citizens of Kentucky.

The requirement for Kentucky Funeral Homes as set for by Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear is as follows:

All funerals in Kentucky are limited to the “Closest of Family” with “Private Burials”


Gov. Beshear said the overriding goal of the order is to minimize in-person interaction, which is the primary means of transmission of COVID-19. The immediate implementation of the order is necessary as patrons of public-facing businesses gather in large numbers, in close proximity to each other and in enclosed spaces, endangering the health of customers and staff.

“For those out there trying to find an exception, if you’re not truly engaging in social distancing, if you are not taking those steps, it will force further action,” Gov. Beshear said. “Not that we want to take it, but we have to protect everybody. It’s all of our duties. Look for ways to be a part of the solution as opposed to being an exception to what we’re putting out there.” 

FDAK fully expects that if we don’t adhere to the stated requirements, then the Governor will take further action and possibly close Kentucky funeral homes to visitations and funerals.

In response to the corona virus pandemic, we will, until further notice, conform to the mandates of the CDC, the Federal Government and Governor of Kentucky.
We will be encouraging families who have a funeral to arrange, to plan a private service that will limit the number of attendees to 10 or less. We understand this may not be the ideal tribute for what you feel is the funeral service your loved one deserves, but we must adhere to this for the health and welfare of not only the public, but also for our staff and others involved in the process.

We will offer to the families we serve, to have a full gathering at a later date, at no additional cost, as scheduling permits.

We are available in our office with limited hours to answer any questions you may have or to address any concerns you have, as always our Funeral Directors and Embalmers on call 24/7 to serve our community.

You may contact us at (606) 573-3757

Your patience and understanding are most appreciated during this time.

Sincerely

John W. Jones, President
