COVID-19 and Green Burial

Here’s what the Green Burial Council has to say about the safety of burial as of April 21st: “The CDC states that decedents with COVID-19 may be buried or cremated according to the family’s preference.”  Family members and providers must keep current about Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) precautions. For more information visit: that has links to guidance from the CDC, OSHA and the National Funeral Directors Association.
