COVID-19 

To Our Beloved Community,

Thank you for visiting our web page. As you are surely aware, we at Congo Funeral Home are concerned with the Covid-19 Coronavirus outbreak. Helping you and your family to celebrate your loved one’s life, while protecting your family, your friends, and our staff is our utmost priority. In order to prevent the unintentional spread of the Coronavirus, Governor Carney has mandated that all gatherings, including funerals, are to include only 50 people or less. While we know this may be a burden for some families, we hope that you understand that this is necessary to get control and to protect us all, especially our children and the elderly who are most vulnerable. So that we can accommodate family members and friends who may not be able to attend, the Congo funeral home will provide free live streaming of services when requested. This will allow those of you who want to be a part of the Celebration of Life Service to be able to do so. This feature can be open to the public or specifically set up for only those you choose.

The Center for Disease Control has also suggested that everyone practice social distancing… staying at least 6 feet from one another. We are proud to say that we have the largest chapel of any local funeral home and can provide you and your family with the peace of mind to practice social distancing while also celebrating your love one's life in the way you desire. All of our chapels are equipped with sanitation stations to give further protection from spreading Covid-19 Coronavirus.

Also, in order to provide you and your family with more peace of mind, we offer funeral arrangements via video or virtually. This will allow family members who may be from out of town, working from their homes, or who just want to practice safety, to be a part of the funeral planning meeting

We appreciate your understanding and we know that this too shall pass. Together, we will get through these tough times. If you have any questions or concerns, please call us at 302 652 8887 or email us at congofuneralhome@aol.com.

Thank you. Take care and be safe.

Sammy, Cherie, Trippi, Kim and the entire Staff of Congo Funeral Home
