Protecting You and Your Family from COVID-19

As you are aware, the situation surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic is fluid and official CDC guidance is continually evolving based on new information from scientists and public health officials. We are dedicated to sharing accurate, reliable information from trustworthy sources and are doing so as quickly as we can.

 


 

A Message from Howard K. Hill

At Howard K. Hill Funeral Services, our ARIA Brand of Excellence in Service remains unwavering and steadfast during the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic. We realize the severity of the Coronavirus is fluid and has us all in uncharted territory.

 

We want to inform you that we are taking all the necessary precautions to make sure your risks are minimized. Rapid changes are happening daily, and we relate to and deeply feel your concerns.

 

In our community, we understand having a funeral service is an essential Rights of Passage to facilitate grieving while celebrating the life of a loved one. Working closely with families and clergy, our top priority is your public safety during this most difficult time. COVID-19’s presence adds emphasis on our service to ensure you and your loved one’s safety.

 

In accordance with the most recent versions of Executive Order 7,  issued by Governor Ned Lamont, consistent with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines, all religious, spiritual, and worship gatherings have now increased to 25 percent of capacity or maximum of 100 people, whichever is smaller. In addition, outdoor gatherings have now been increased to 150 people with proper social distancing and safety measures.  We will work simultaneously with these government-mandated regulations to protect all of us from the Coronavirus and properly facilitate funeral services for you.

 

In addition to Executive Order 7, we are also taking in account the recommendations by the Connecticut Funeral Directors Association (CFDA). Members and workers shall communicate if they are not feeling well or experiencing any of the following symptoms; cough, shortness of breath, fever, muscle pain, chills, sore throat or loss of taste or smell. Members should also communicate if they have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 and should NOT attend in person funeral services.

 

To comply with these new regulations, HKH Funeral Services is offering live streaming, services will be available to watch on both computer and phone for those who cannot attend in person funeral services. In-person funeral arrangement meetings are limited to two people. We are willing to make the proper accommodation for family members in order to make sure they can still have a fulfilling service.

 

Our offices still run at full capacity and available to you. We stand ready for counseling/arrangements, immediate transportation of remains, embalming, storage or immediate cremation of your loved ones. If available, we still offer domestic/international shipping.
