Dear community members,

Jenkins Funeral Chapel prioritizes the health and well-being of our associates and guests. We understand this is a fluid situation and are monitoring and evaluating developments of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

We and the State of Ohio still believe that gathering and supporting one another at a time of loss is important. The State of Ohio has exempted funerals from the public gathering ban; however, the CDC’s most recent recommendation is no more than 10 people in attendance at public gatherings. The State of Ohio has revised the order issuing the ban on public gatherings in order to comply with the CDC’s recommendations. To protect the health and safety of our associates, families, and the community moving forward, all services and visitation will be strictly private with the option of complementary on-site video streaming.

We do ask that those at risk or those not feeling well stay home, but reach out to the family via the memorial webpage on If you are attending private services, please follow the CDC recommendations below.

To make sure that the community is able to participate in the ceremony, we are offering complementary on-site video streaming of services to our families, where available, until further notice.

In addition to communicating best health and safety practices to our associates and guests, Jenkins Funeral Chapel has implemented enhanced cleaning throughout our locations:

  • Associates have been reminded of and encouraged to use good hand hygiene and cough etiquette habits.
  • Heightened daily disinfection practices for high-touch surfaces

We encourage you to follow the CDC recommendation to take the usual steps to help prevent the spread of illness:

  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available-based hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes with your arm or inner elbow
  • Avoid close contact with sick people
  • Stay home when you are sick or not feeling well.

Thank you for your understanding,
Andrew Jenkins
