George Brothers Funeral Service Is Prepared to Safely Care For Families During the COVID-19 Pandemic 
 
George Brothers Funeral Service remains committed and prepared to safely care for the families and community we serve during the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Whenever possible, we will continue to enable families to participate in the rituals that are most important and comforting to them.  
 
As you are aware, each day brings new challenges and new information as we move through this national and world health crisis. Our current COVID-19 policy is subject to change as local and national authorities direct. 
        
George Brothers Funeral Service has adopted the following COVID-19 policy effective May 20, 2020. 
    
      In accordance with Executive Order No. 141 issued by Governor Roy Cooper, funerals are exempted from any restrictions on the number of individuals allowed to attend.
 (Section 4. Exemptions from This Executive Order:  
Worship, religious, and spiritual gatherings, funeral ceremonies, wedding ceremonies, and other activities constituting the exercise of First Amendment rights are exempt from all the  
requirements of this Executive Order and Executive Order Nos. 121 and 138, notwithstanding any other provision of this Executive Order or of Executive Order Nos. 121 and 138.  
The undersigned strongly urges that entities and individuals engaging in these exempted activities follow the Recommendations to Promote Social Distancing and Reduce Transmission, avoid exceeding Emergency Maximum Occupancy in the places where they meet, and avoid holding Mass Gatherings. )

At this time, we are finding that each local jurisdiction is adopting new policies in their local areas. Therefore, when we are called to serve beyond the Guilford County, North Carolina border, George Brothers Funeral Service will work diligently to stay within the parameters set forth by the local authority including city, county, and state. In addition, we have encountered other restrictions and policy set by cemeteries and houses of worship that are both in conflict with and stricter than policy that local authority has set. When this occurs, we are committed to honor the most stringent restrictions called for.
 
We understand the death of a loved one brings unique challenges to each person and our policy, as stated above, will certainly add to those challenges. But please understand, the health and well being of our entire community, especially those at most risk for the life-threatening symptoms of the coronavirus must be our first priority. 
 

George Brothers Funeral Service began serving this community in July of 2002.  We have been involved in funeral service in the Greensboro community since 1987.  In our communities, today's funeral service seems to have become big business rather than a ministry; however, we at George Brothers strongly feel your family's needs should come first.  We are truly committed to making a positive difference in the lives of those who call on us.
