Our statement and policies regarding this situation may change day-to-day to ensure the health and safety of our families and staff, as well as to comply with local and provincial governments and our governing board's directives.
One of our top priorities at Cole Funeral Services, Pinecrest Remembrance, and Highland Park Cemetery is the health and safety of our families and staff as we continue to take the lead from the Public Health Agency of Canada, Ottawa Public Health, and the World Health Organization. We are still providing onsite services but have instituted a series of policies as outlined below.
We are still operating as a business and encourage our families to reach out to us to make the necessary funeral arrangements. For services and visitations - we can only accommodate up to 30% capacity in the designated area where the service or visitation is being held in. For graveside services - a limit of 50 people has been imposed. Again, the health and safety of our families, members of the public and our staff is one of our top priorities.
We encourage all visitors to the cemetery to practice social distancing as advised by our governing bodies.
