Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Visitation Policy

For over 90 years, the Connell, Dow & Deysenroth Funeral Home has remained deeply committed to responsibly responding to the needs of the communities we 

are privileged to serve, as well as to the health and well-being of our fellow citizens, the families we serve, and our associates.

In response to the developing public health concern relative to the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we are taking certain precautionary measures in 

all we do in line with those recommended to us by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the New York State Department of Health, the New York 

State Bureau of Funeral Directing, and the New York State Funeral Directors Association.

Effective Sunday, March 22, 2020, at 8 p.m., we are allowed to offer visitations, viewings, and services at our facility for immediate family members only. As no 

specific definition of “immediate family” has been made available to funeral homes in New York State, the number of people who may attend services will be 

limited to as few as possible while still maintaining social distancing. At the very least, this will include a spouse, children, grandchildren, and, dependent on a 

family’s size, siblings. Please be assured that we will work with your family to facilitate the best arrangement that will suit your individual needs while adhering 

to the current legal mandates and limitations.

Please take care of yourselves and each other, and know that we are here to serve you in your time of need.

Peter A. Deysenroth
Licensed Funeral Director and Embalmer, Owner and Licensed Manager
