Governor’s Office Clarifies That Attending a Funeral Service is an Essential Activity

At Clock Funeral Home, we are committed to delivering the same level of excellence to families in our community while maintaining the health, wellbeing, and safety of our employees and the families we serve.

Michigan Funeral Directors Association (MFDA) seeked to clarify Governor Whitmer’s “Stay-At-Home” order (E.O. 2020-21) yesterday 3-23-2020, on the question of whether attending a funeral service is exempt as an “essential activity”. MFDA has confirmed that attending a funeral service is considered exempt.

Funeral home staff are considered “Critical Infrastructure Workers,” aka essential workers, by the Federal Government. We will continue to serve you and your family, given Governor Whitmer’s “Stay-At-Home” order.

  • We can still hold a funeral service for your loved one (as it’s an “essential activity” by the Governor’s office)
  • Services will be limited to 10 people or less, while also practicing social distancing

This situation is rapidly evolving and is subject to change at any time. We will continue to take guidance from the CDC and governors office, and share any changes and details as they become available.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions at all. You may contact us 24/7 at (231) 722-3721 or send us an email using our contact form.

Be well.
