At Lytle Welty Funeral Homes & Cremation Service, our families are our top priority. We want to assure you that we are monitoring the COVID-19 situation daily and are following all the guidelines set forth by the local health department and elected officials, the office of Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb, and the CDC. For the last several months, our staff has been taking precautions to protect our families and those who mean the most to them. As of 12:00 PM on January 6, 2021, Jefferson County (IN) was declared a "Red" County through the state wide metric system. This means that all visitations are limited to 25 people inside the facility at one time regardless of location, and the use of masks and proper social distancing are required. Funeral services that are officiated by a clergy member, at the funeral home or a local church, are considered a religious service and is not limited by a specific number but all those in attendance must be able to properly social distance.
At this time, we ask that anyone who has recently experienced or is currently experiencing a fever, cough, or shortness of breath, or if you have been in direct contact with someone who has been or could be diagnosed with COVID-19, to please refrain from visiting our facilities. In consideration of our staff and the families we serve, we require the use of a face mask while inside our facility. Maintaining the appropriate social distance of six feet between household parties is also highly recommended. We are proud to offer live-streaming services to our families to allow family and friends who do not feel comfortable attending services to still take part in celebrating their loved one's life.
If you have any questions or would like further clarification, you can call us anytime at (812) 265-5112 or email, email@example.com to talk to a member of our staff. Our funeral directors/owners, Trevor Lytle and Brye Welty, are committed to serving the families of our great community regardless of our current circumstances. They are available anytime to accommodate those families who have lost a loved one and are in need of immediate assistance. We hope you understand that we are simply trying to do our part to help reduce the spread of this virus, and we trust everyone else is doing the same.
While our services may have changed, our commitment to providing the most compassionate care to our families will never waiver.
