2. Be prepared!

The ABFS feels that it is important that funeral homes be prepared for the possibility that they may be called on to provide services for an infected person, and if that be the case, ABFS wants the funeral professionals in this state to know how to protect themselves as well as the community they serve. This information is not meant to alarm anyone, only to inform. However it is our prayer that none of us have to encounter this deadly disease.

ABFS encourages everyone to continue to monitor the ADPH website and CDC website. As more information is release to ABFS we will be forwarding that information to our funeral professionals.
