COVID-19 Updates

As our nation works to fight the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19), James H. Cole Home for Funerals is dedicated to providing a safe environment for our visitors.

We are taking precautionary measures, following the lead of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), State and local Health Departments.

In our ongoing effort to protect everyone’s health, it is critical that we minimize potential exposure. To achieve this, funeral services will continue to remain private and adhere to the limitations as set forth by the MDHHS. Friends and associates of the family are encouraged to attend the visitations the day prior to the service.

In accordance with the MDHHS emergency order, everyone is required to wear a mask/protective face covering while visiting our facilities, and adhere to social distancing guidelines.

We appreciate your understanding during this time.

For more information, please view the MDHHS Emergency Order.
