NFDA continues to lead the conversation and keep the funeral profession informed about the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) situation.
Join us for this free Facebook Live event that will cover how you can help families navigate the ways COVID-19 has affected funeral rituals – you can still create meaningful services!
The pandemic has added additional stress and pressure on everyone. We’ll also discuss ways you can take care of yourself so you can be at your best when serving families.

New Resources on the NFDA COVID-19 Information Hub
On March 19, at NFDA’s urging, the Department of Homeland Security issued guidance to states naming mortuary workers as “critical infrastructure workers.” We have a breakdown of what this means for you.
Are you concerned about contracting COVID-19 from surviving family members, regardless of their loved one’s cause of death? See our advice on the new Transfers and Arrangements page.
We’ve updated and clarified the information on our Technical Information page to keep you safe while performing removals and embalming.
Check out the updated information about funeral webcasting on the Visitations and Funerals page. Matt Smith also shared a great video about livestreaming, which is on our Practical Guidance Webinars page.
