During this time of uncertainly and turmoil, The Roger W. Davis Funeral Home wants to let you know we are still here for you. We are always monitoring the situation and the guidelines for gatherings. We and the State of Ohio still believe that gathering and supporting one another at a time of loss is important, which is why the State of Ohio has exempted funerals from the public gathering ban. Still the recommendation from the Governor and the CDC is no more than 50 people at any gathering.
Our goal is to help families so they can still have a public visitation and a funeral. We will do our best to comply with the State of Ohio and the CDC's mandates. We ask for your cooperation with this task. We do ask that those at risk or those not feeling well stay home, but reach out to the family via the memorial webpage at www.rogerwdavisfuneralhome.com. We encourage you to follow CDC recommendation to take the usual steps to help prevent to the spread of the illness:
- Wash your hand 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 am or inner elbow.
- Avoid close contact with sick people.
- Stay home when you are sick or not feeling well.
We at the Roger W. Davis Funeral Home have also enhanced our cleaning throughout our funeral home:
- Associates have been reminded of and encouraged to use good hand hygiene and cough etiquette habits.
- Heightened daily disinfection practices for high-touch surfaces.
- Even though this is very difficult, we have asked our staff not to shake hands or hug people for both our staff's safety and the safety of the families and guests.
To help during this difficult time the funeral home will offer to have private viewing time for elderly family members and a the family's request, will offer live streaming of the funeral on our Facebook page.
We at the Roger W. Davis Funeral Home will do everything in our power to help protect families, our community, and our staff. Please call us if you have any questions.
