FOREST LAWN PRECAUTIONARY STEPS

At Forest Lawn – Coachella Valley, there is nothing more important than the health and well-being of the families we serve, the employees who work here, and the public at large. That’s why we’re taking the following steps to provide a safe environment at all of our locations.

  • We’re aligning all of our actions with the latest directives that come from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and local health officials.
  • We’re keeping our employees, vendors, and partners informed and up-to-date, to ensure their safety and that of the people we serve.
  • We have boosted all our disinfecting schedules and procedures as a preventative measure for all public-facing areas, as well as our mortuaries and offices.
  • We’ve implemented extra training for our employees as we continue to provide the highest level of caring service that our families have come to expect.
  • We follow universal safety precautions for infectious disease in all our mortuary operations. You can expect our employees to engage in social distancing and enhanced hygiene practices as recommended by the CDC and other health officials.
  • We will continue to follow the guidelines and recommendations issued by Federal, State, and local health officials on the steps we can take to help prevent the spread of the virus.

  •  Minimize, where possible, close contact and the sharing of objects such as cups, food, and drink.
  •  Stay home when you are sick.
  •  Avoid touching your mouth, nose, and eyes with unwashed hands.
  •  Cover your mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, then throw the tissue in the trash.
