Coronavirus (COVID-19) Operational Updates

As a result of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the way we celebrate and honor those who have died has changed. It's still hard to imagine that we’d ever find ourselves in a situation where such change and disruption was necessary. However, our staff has been trained to help guide you through these times as safely and calmly as we can. Our hope is that in this public health crisis, we can continue to offer services and the emotional support to help you cope with loss as you deal with the added anxiety that the Coronavirus pandemic brings.

At Bay Area Mortuary, the safety of our customers and employees is our uncompromising priority. As a trusted
community leader serving families for over 25 years, we have implemented operational changes to protect the health of our families, their guests, our employees, and the community at large:

We ask that funeral, burial, cremation and domestic/international
repatriation arrangements be made via telephone, email or video conference.
Our phone number is 408-998-2202.

Funeral services may still be held, however, to keep in accordance with
the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and Public Health & Safety orders, they will be
limited to immediate family (no more than 10 people). During times when ALL indoor gatherings are prohibited, we will accommodate our families in our outdoor chapel.

We are encouraging the Live Webcasting of Funeral Services
which allows people to stay at home yet still able to watch the service.

We request guests who are experiencing any cold or flu-like symptoms
including fever, cough and shortness of breath, refrain from visiting Bay Area Mortuary at this time. Again, phone, video conference and live webcasting services are available.

We believe we have a responsibility to do all we can to minimize the potential spread of COVID-19. The steps noted above are to protect and ensure the safety of both our guests and employees while remaining open for the communities we serve and are proud to be a part of.

Infectious disease has been a part of our profession for many years and our Funeral Counselors and Embalmers are well informed and educated on this subject matter. Our Funeral Counselors are also licensed embalmers so a good portion of their training is understanding the human body and how it is affected by dangerous viruses and bacteria. Our knowledge of the procedures and techniques required to keep ourselves and the public safe were in place far before this crisis.

We wish you, your family and friends good health and appreciate your understanding and cooperation as we all work together during this challenging time.
