An update on COVID-19 from Olson-Schwartz Funeral Home & Cremation Service

Olson-Schwartz Funeral Home & Cremation Service is committed to maintaining a safe and healthy workplace for our valued staff and helping the community we serve to do the same. We have been closely monitoring the ongoing COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak according to the guidelines and recommendations of the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention).

We want to share with you the actions we are taking to help protect our staff and the families we serve.

Our staff has been trained to follow the public health authorities’ guidance regarding hygiene and personal travel, and we’ve reinforced existing policy encouraging staff who exhibit flu-like symptoms to stay home and consult with a medical professional. We have also posted signage within our locations advising visitors to make responsible decisions about attending services in person if they feel symptomatic.

We want you to know that we are open and available to help you and that we still respond to calls when a death occurs.

We are following community and CDC recommendations to limit gatherings.

We are requiring social distancing when at our facilities and to not attend events at our facilities if they have a cough, a fever or feel ill.

Reception and Community Room events are suspended until further notice.

Families are encouraged to participate in Arrangement Conferences using other technologies; (e.g. our Collaboration Center, e-mail, conference calls etc.), if in-person Arrangement meetings are not feasible.

We appreciate the trust that you place in us. We will continue to closely monitor the situation and take actions necessary to help keep our staff and our community safe while providing the services you need during this difficult time.


Sincerely,

Olson-Schwartz Funeral Home & Cremation Service Staff

On behalf of the Stai and Norvold families, I wanted to thank you personally, Kirk and Arden, for the professional, yet incredibly kind and compassionate assistance you provided our families from the time of dad's passing to his memorial service and beyond. The guidance you gave in the midst of our grief, when decision making can seem overwhelming, was so helpful, and always conducted in a caring manner, and you patiently answered our many questions. We miss dad terribly and will always be grateful for the friendly yet dignified manner in which you carried out our wishes for his cremation and memorial service. Your earlier help with setting up our parents' funeral policies was also invaluable, as it made the planning and decision-making somewhat easier knowing everything was pre-paid. Again, thank you for helping us through a very difficult time. We appreciate you!

Kind regards,

Stacy Norvold
