COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

July 8, 2020 - 

We again would like to thank everyone with distancing and allowing us to serve your families during these trying times.  We will continue to update you as needed but for now we will continue to make arrangements at our East or West Locations with Arrangement Conferences of less that 10 attendees or via Zoom or Google Meet.  Pre-Arrangements will continue in person at one of our locations, your home or via Zoom or Google Meet as well.  Larger gatherings will be allowed at our East (402 Waugoo Ave) location with groups of 30 or less for the actual Memorial or Funeral Service and 50 or less at our West (100 Lake Pointe Drive) location.  Visitations will be allowed with the same numbers and as attendants come and go, distancing will be expected allowing no more than 30/50 in our locations at a time.  We will assist as guests exit and enter a location.  We will not require face masks be worn but encourage anyone attending to wear one if they feel the least bit uncomfortable and upon request by a family our staff will wear face masks if preferred.  Hand sanitizer will always be available. Coffee and water will be available but our staff will serve. Church services are opening a bit more for services at well.  We will follow their guidelines as provided in each instance.  As we round out June, thank you for your kind consideration and understanding and as always please call if you have any funeral related questions.                                        

                                                       

May 22, 2020 - 

A note From Winnebago County - As we begin to open our businesses and communities, we want to remind our residents and visitors that, although the Safer at Home orders have been lifted, COVID-19 has not gone away and our recommendations still remain. The efforts we take now will determine how well the virus continues to be contained.  Over the past week, community members and partners have shared that more guidance and recommendations from the health department regarding reopening would be helpful. The Winnebago County Health Department issues the recommendations linked here to serve as guidelines to control the transmission of the virus throughout our communities.

We at Konrad-Behlman are excited as Covid-19 restrictions are starting to lift. Many will wonder how we will proceed with funerals and celebrations of life going forward. Our priority is the health and safety of the families and the community we serve so at this time, we are continuing to follow previous guidelines put in place of under 10 people at indoor services at our facilities following social distancing guidelines.  We will also honor local church and cemetery guidelines on what will be allowed with their indoor gatherings and share appropriatly with each of your families. All outdoor celebrations at a cemetery (no minimum size of groups) are allowed as long as social distancing is followed (each family/household group must maintain a six foot spacing). 

Please understand that this is an ever-changing climate even with the restrictions easing. We will continue to update everyone on our policies and communicate these adjustments to the families and community we serve as they come forward.

We would like to thank everyone for their patience and understanding during these unprecedented times.  Have a safe and well deserved rest this Memorial Day Weekend!!!

 

 

May 8, 2020 - Great news for Families to have outdoor Funeral and Memorial Services from WFDA

 “Under Section 1 of Safer At Home, outdoor funeral services with more than 10 people are permitted, so long as everyone maintains social distancing. Under Section 13.h and 13.i, indoor funerals must be limited to fewer than 10 people in a room or confined space at the same time and attendees must maintain social distancing. Regardless of whether it is indoors or outdoors, members of the same living unit or household do not need to maintain social distancing. In addition to standing six feet apart, facial coverings are also strongly recommended for attendees.”

 

April 21, 2020 - Thank you to everyone in our community following the guidelines of being "Safer at Home."  It makes us proud to know we are a part of a group of families and friends that are doing everything we can to get rid of the Covid-19 Virus.  We look forward to our next guidance date of May 26, 2020.  Stay Safe and Stay Healthy!

 

April 9, 2020 - 

Our online and phone conferences are going well and we want to thank you all for your cooperation in allowing us to continue to offer the services of Pre-Need and At-Need planning.  We still request a phone call to set an appointment with us instead of just walking-in un announced but please use our PRE-PLAN tab on our home page to get things started.  If we must meet in person our main arrangement location will continue to have our Waugoo Ave entrance locked so when making an appointment please know we will ask all families to enter through our Waugoo North entrance (back parking lot). 

To comply with "Social Distancing" we will continue, with no exceptions, honor the request to keep all arrangements and funeral or memorial services to less than 10 participants (including our staff).  This includes outside graveside services.  There has been some confusion but waiting in vehicles is NOT allowed as all attendees are a part of the group whether in a parking lot, cemetery or other location. 

The Konrad-Behlman Funeral Home remains committed and prepared to safely care for the families it serves during the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Whenever possible, the Konrad-Behlman Funeral Home will continue to enable families to participate in the rituals that are most important to them. Be kind to the families that are experiencing a loss and know that in our ever changing environment we will work with everyone according to our guidelines. Any postponements we have are due to family decisions based on the wish for total closure for ALL friends and family to share in the planned celebration of life.  While we are not able to invite the public please know that when we are back up and running as we all know it, we will schedule full services as before.  In the meantime, please be patient while we all go through COVID-19 together. 

Our pledge to you and the families we serve

 “At the Konrad-Behlman Funeral Home we recognize our responsibility to protect the health of those we are privileged to serve. “We will continue to guide families, as we always have, in ways they can meaningfully commemorate the life of their loved one, while adhering to the guidance issued by federal, state and local public health officials.”

“Our staff remains vigilant about cleaning our facilities and ensuring we’re all following recommended healthy habits, such as staying home when sick, washing our hands, and covering coughs and sneezes. The CDC and our state and local public health officials have offered a lot of helpful guidance for businesses on this topic, which we continue to follow.”

A member of the National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA), the Konrad-Behlman Funeral Home regularly receives information via NFDA from the CDC, Department of Health and Human Services and other agencies about the evolution of COVID-19 in the United States. NFDA continues to lead the conversation with federal officials about the role of funeral service as it relates to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Important Information
