Facts about funerals and COVID-19

Brooks Funeral Home prioritizes the health and well-being of our associates and guests. We understand this is a fluid situation and are monitoring and evaluating developments of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

We and the State of Minnesota still believe that gathering and supporting one another at a time of loss is important which is why the State of Minnesota has exempted funerals from the public gathering ban. In an effort to comply with the CDC’s most recent recommendation of no more than 50 people in attendance at public gatherings, all services and visitation with the option of complimentary on-site video streaming. Families that choose to hold a private service at this time will have the option to hold a public memorial service at a later date. 

We do ask that those at risk or those not feeling well stay home, but reach out to the family via the memorial webpage on www.brooksfuneralhomemn.com. If you are attending private services, please follow the CDC recommendations below.

In addition to communicating best health and safety practices to our associates and guests, Brooks Funeral Home has implemented enhanced cleaning throughout our locations:

  • Associates have been reminded of and encouraged to use good hand hygiene and cough etiquette habits.
  • Heightened daily disinfection practices for high-touch surfaces

We encourage you to follow the CDC recommendation to take the usual steps to help prevent the spread of illness:

  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available-based hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes with your arm or inner elbow
  • Avoid close contact with sick people
  • Stay home when you are sick or not feeling well.
