This guide is concerned with the period from the time a death occurs up to the burial or cremation. It is intended to provide clear advice as to what bereaved families might expect as they make funeral arrangements. In particular, it outlines the changes that have become necessary to what are often fundamental and time honoured rituals and processes associated with marking the passing of a loved one during the COVID-19 pandemic.
This resource is part of a Collection of similar guidelines entitled "COVID-19: Management of the Dead", and it is included in the series of Collections supporting response to Covid-19 outbreak. Collections are monitored daily and new content is added.
