COVID-19


Swigart-Easterling prioritizes the health and safety of our employees and guests. Given the reality of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is important to know that funeral directors throughout Ohio are taking precautions to limit exposure to the coronavirus. We are still operating 24 hours a day, seven days a week making certain that those entrusted to our care and the families we serve are receiving uninterrupted service and attention, regardless of the cause of death. Serving our community with loss is our privilege and honor. In conjunction with the Ohio Funeral Directors Association we have been in constant contact with federal and state agencies including the Center for Disease Control, Ohio Department of Health, Ohio Emergency Management Agency and our local health departments. As health officials have indicated, one way to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus is through limiting public gatherings. Our sympathies go out to anyone who has the additional burden of grief and loss during this time, and we are here to guide each family with their needs on an individual basis. Furthermore, we encourage bereaved families to work with us to create meaningful services that fall within the governor’s, and Center of Disease Control, recommendation of limiting large public gatherings. Social distancing is the best way to limit the spread of the COVID-19. 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.swigarteasterlingfuneralhome.com.
In addition to communicating best health and safety practices to our employees and guests, Swigart-Easterling has implemented enhanced cleaning throughout our facility:
•    Employees 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.

Above all, we are committed to the families we serve. We remain focused on maintaining high standards and ethical practices as we serve the dead and bereaved with the health and well-being of our communities in mind as we move forward together in the coming weeks and months.
