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.

Kirk, Arden, Karen, Wendell & Jean,
Words can't express the gratitude we have for you all! From the time the hospice nurse told us Kirk would be calling to arrange getting Mom back to Bemidji. To Wendell assuring us that he would be at the cemetery until Mom was buried; you were all there taking care of the details. Thanks so much for all your kind words, memories of Mom and the hugs!! We were blessed to have you all join us in this journey!
Love & Prayers,
Jvonne's five little angels!

Cheryl, Marleen, Marsha, Tim & Lynn,
