Andrew Valerio & Sons Funeral Directors would like to inform you of the following measures and precautions we are putting in place in response to COVID-19.

We will continue to follow government regulations and would like to reassure our families that funerals arranged under these unprecedented circumstances will be carried out with the utmost respect and professionalism for the deceased and their bereaved family.

The NSW Government has announced further easing of funeral attendance restrictions, effective immediately. As a result, there are no limits on funeral attendance other than the social distancing rule of one person per four square metres. For indoor services, this will be measured on a case by case basis dependent upon the location. The NSW Government requires that people attending a funeral service are required to supply their name and contact details so that they can be used for contact tracing.

We will be offering hand sanitizer upon entering and prior to exiting our funeral services to ensure we are doing everything possible to limit the spread of coronavirus.

For the safety of families and the general public, we ask that anyone who has returned from overseas in the last 14 days; or who has been exposed to a confirmed or suspected coronavirus patient, remain at home.

If you have any symptoms of fever, shortness of breath, cough or sore throat, remain at home.

We want to work together to ensure everyone remains safe and appreciate your understanding at this difficult time.
