Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

We continue to monitor federal, state, and other agencies for new or revised information and guidance. 
The AGEG Board of Directors encourage all funeral service professionals to follow best practices and guidance.  
It is important to share guidance and information with your fellow funeral home staff as it becomes available 
so you may 
continue to safely serve your families and community. 

AGEG members are updated by email and this page is updated as guidance and information becomes available.
