With the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, funeral arrangements and services have been affected. The enforcement of safe distancing measures means there won’t be large gatherings in funeral services as it used to be before. Read on to find out more about what we have been doing to keep our staff and customers safe.
Funerals in the New Normal
SafeEntry QR code
To aid in contact tracing measures, SafeEntry QR codes are provided for all funeral wakes and will be displayed at a prominent location near the entrance
Provision of ____
A set of thermometer and a bottle of hand sanitiser will be provided for all funeral wakes to keep family members and visitors of the wake safe. Remember to sanitise your hands before and after visiting the wake!
Live Streaming Services
Live streaming can be arranged for families who will like to opt for this service. Whether it be for family members who are unable to make it back to Singapore due to Covid-19 or if the dearly departed has a extended network of friends and relatives, this service will be able to help those who are unable to be present at the wake view the funeral.
Individually Packaged Snacks and Drinks
Visitors at wakes will be familiar with the sight of a bowl of peanuts and guazi in the middle of the every table. However, these will all be replaced with individual packets of snacks and drinks for attendees. Grab your own packet of snacks and avoid the risk of _____!
Reduction of Crowds
In line with safe distancing measures by NEA, all funerals are limited to 30 attendees. Tables and chairs will be reduced to ____ this measure.
To ensure the safety of people who visit the wake and to ensure that families are able to keep track of the crowd at the wake, we will be cordoning off the wake area and only allowing a small entrance for visitors to enter and exit from. This allows the family to be better able to maintain and control the crowd and abide by safe measurements.
Limit on Cremation / Burial Attendees
Cremations and burials are limited to 30 pax. For cremation at Mandai, our funeral advisors will hand out a visitor entry pass for attendees who will be at the viewing session.
Buffet and live cooking stations will be paused until further notice to prevent the unnecessary spreading of germs. Bento sets will be used as replacement during this period of time for families who would still like to opt for meals to be provided for themselves and
