Irish Funeral Home Association releases coronavirus guidelines for funeral directors

In a response to the increasing death toll of coronavirus victims, the Irish Association of Funeral Directors has issued guidelines for handling deceased victims of the virus.

The guidelines are meant to protect funeral directors as well as their clients. On a daily basis close gatherings take place at funeral homes, making it an ideal place for the coronavirus to spread quickly. In Haro, Spain there has been a case with tens of infected people after attending the funeral service of a loved one. 

After the UK and now Ireland releasing official guidelines it’s expected that more funeral director associations around the world will share guidelines and best practices.
