Alberta has implemented public health orders restricting mass gatherings to protect Albertans’ health and limit the spread of COVID-19.
A gathering is any event or assembling that brings people together in person, in a single room or single space, indoors or outdoors, at the same time.
Mandatory mass gathering restrictions No gatherings with more than 15 people are allowed, including:
FUNERALS, conferences, workshops, worship gatherings,
family events, such as weddings, social gatherings outdoors
Cancel gatherings with fewer than 15 people if the event:
*includes any attendees travelling from outside of Canada
*has, as its focus, attendees that are members of critical infrastructure or critical service roles (e.g. healthcare workers, first responders, electric/power workers, telecommunications)
*includes attendees from demographic groups at greater risk of severe disease, such as people 60 years of age or older and individuals with chronic medical conditions.
*Participation in activities that promote disease transmission (e.g. singing, cheering, close contact, sharing food or beverages, buffet style meals) is in a space that does not allow for recommended social distancing (at least 6 feet between attendees).
If you violate this public health order and proceed to hold an event with more than 15 attendees, you may be subject to a fine.
As communities around the world are struggling with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) we
wanted to reassure you that the health and safety of our client families, employees and
anyone entering into our funeral home is our first priority. Being labeled in Alberta as an
Essential Service, we, at Mission View Funeral Chapel will continue to serve you in our best
way possible within the restrictions of our Government and Association guidelines.
We will continue to welcome anyone into our facility, this includes making funeral
arrangements (1-2 people). However, if you have been out of the country or do not feel well
we ask that you refrain from coming in and call us instead. We will make every effort to
accommodate your needs by phone and/or email.
Following Alberta's newly implemented public health orders we will refrain from a
gathering of more than 15 people (this is subject to change). As to respect the grieving
needs of our client families we will continue to encourage funerals for close family
members and invited guests for up to 15 people and/or a visitation which can also be held
within this limit. Another option would be to have different visitation times for different
people with this capacity restriction. We will also continue to welcome the option to hold
the service at a later date when the current pandemic subsides.
Showing your compassion to a family member or friend is even more important than
before. Therefore , as always, you are more than welcome to express your sympathy online
through our website, Facebook page or email.
Through this difficult time we want to thank you in advance for your understanding and
especially to the front-line healthcare workers who are working tirelessly on this effort.
If you have any questions or concerns please call us.
