CURRENTLY, ABFS AND ADPH RECOMMEND THAT ALL FUNERAL HOMES IN THIS STATE DO THE FOLLOWING:

1. VISIT THE ADPH WEBSITE AT
www.adph.org/ebola
a. – On the left hand side of the screen click on “Health Care Providers”
b. – At the bottom of the next screen under the heading “Additional Healthcare Resources” review the following links:
i. – Guidance for Safe Handling of Human Remains of Ebola Patients in U. S. Hospitals and Mortuaries
ii. – Medical Waste Management (These links will lead you to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website.)

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.
