CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) STATEMENT 

Louisville Memorial Gardens West understands the severity and the risk involved with the Coronavirus (Covid-19). As a public entity, we want to assure you that we are taking this Pandemic very seriously and are taking all necessary precautions to ensure that we reduce your risk to exposure while in attendance at our facility.
We are closely monitoring all communications by the Center for Disease Control and the National Funeral Directors Association as well as our local and state health agencies regarding all information on the Coronavirus (Covid-19).
To ensure that your risk is minimized while attending an event at our facility, we have put the following Emergency Plan in place:

**OUR OFFICE IS CURRENTLY CLOSED TO WALK IN TRAFFIC - ALL BUSINESS WILL BE DONE BY APPOINTMENT ONLY**
If you have an immediate need please call the office

ARRANGEMENT CONFERENCES:
At Need arrangement conferences will be by APPOINTMENT ONLY
When family members come to the cemetery office to sign paperwork for an Interment, Entombment or Inurnment, there will be a maximum of 3 family members allowed in the arrangement room.  Any others will be asked to wait outside.

BURIAL/COMMITTAL SERVICES:
Effective 4/8/2020 through (at least) 5/01/2020 we will conduct NO committal services in our chapels or at the graveside.  All burial services will be DIRECT burials.  If the family would like to watch the committal, they must stay in or beside their cars during the service.  Social distancing guidelines will still be in effect.

FUNERAL SERVICES:
Funeral Services will be limited to 10 IMMEDIATE family members.  Maintaining the recommended 6 ft distance apart will also be expected during these services.

Our staff will make environmental cleaning procedures top priority. Every 4 hours (at least) all door handles, knobs, faucets, toilets, water fountains, and any other surfaces that come into human contact will be thoroughly cleaned with an antibacterial agent. Trash cans will be emptied frequently.

Hot beverages will be available for our families but will be prepared by our staff and dispensed from CLOSED brewing containers as opposed to open air traditional coffee pots. Hot tea and cocoa will be prepared by a staff member upon request. Condiments (i.e., creamer pods and sugars) are individually wrapped and will be available to our families. Plastic tongs will be available to pick up these items. Bottled water will be available upon request (for as long as we can get it).
 
Hand Sanitizer, Kleenex and bacterial wipes will be provided (for as long as we can get them). 
  
This plan will be in place for as long as deemed necessary based on CDC guidelines.

Honoring and remembering a life is always our top priority, but public health and safety are first and foremost in our minds during this time. We have devised this plan for your protection, but we advise that if you have any concerns or apprehension about attending our facility, please stay safe at home.


Effective July 11, 2018

For the safety and comfort of our families and visitors we will be closing and locking both of our mausoleums (Alpha Utopia and Fireside) every evening. The mausoleum doors will be locked manually each evening Monday thru Sunday at 7:30 pm. We will unlock the doors every morning at 7:00 am so that loved ones may visit. The keypad on the doors will still be used during visiting hours but once the building is locked the keypad will no longer work.

We apologize for any inconvenience

Visiting Hours for Alpha Utopia Mausoleum and Fireside Mausoleum: 7:00am - 7:30pm Monday thru Sunday



Why is Preplanning Important?

Many families find excellent value in going through the advanced planning process for their final arrangements. Advanced planning allows for you to record vital information and keep it on file with our funeral home or cemetery and eases the process your family might endure at the time of death.

Additionally, advanced planning allows for you to plan the Celebration of Life event, venue, music, disposition choice and desired final resting place. To learn more about the value of advanced planning, please read the information we have included within our website. You may also call us and we will discuss the choices you have available to you over the phone or in person.
