Covid-19 – Irish Government Guide for the Bereaved & funeral arrangements
The COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to change the usual ways we deal with the loss of a loved one.
This guide, published by the Irish Government, is concerned with the period from the time a death occurs up to the burial or cremation.
It is intended to provide clear advice as to what bereaved families might expect as they make funeral arrangements.
In particular, it outlines the changes that have become necessary to what are often fundamental and time honoured rituals and processes associated with marking the passing of a loved one during the COVID-19 pandemic:
- Pronouncement of death, the role of the Coroner and post mortems
- Funeral Arrangements
- Funeral Service
- Post Funeral Gatherings
- Financial Assistance
