Barrett’s COVID-19 Statement

Our focus at Barrett’s is always on providing comfort and care to our families who have lost loved ones.


During these exceptional times we need to find ways for our families to grieve and start the healing process, while at the same time provide a safe and secure environment for them to do so.


In light of the recent COVID-19 pandemic Barrett’s has implemented the following practices and procedures to date:

 -Implemented a regular disinfecting of our public areas beyond our regular cleaning.

 -Posted signage throughout our facilities to avoid hand shaking and close personal contact.

 -Posted signage advising of proper handwashing.

 -Due to the Public Health Emergency declared by the Government of NL (March 18, 2020) and following the updates issued (November 25, 2020) Barrett’s have restricted the number of family members having access to the funeral home, and funeral services may now be held in our chapel or church (provided the church allows). Numbers will be restricted to 70 people including clergy for both chapel locations and 100 people at a church. Please know we are able to offer livestreaming so others can attend virtually.  

-Visitations are permitted with restrictions. The maximum number of people in the visitation room at one time (including staff and family) should be the lesser of: either 20 or the number that can be accommodated with physical distancing, according to the room size.

 -Wearing a non-medical mask/facial covering at our facilities is required.

- If you have travelled outside the province in the last 14 days we ask that you refrain from visiting the funeral home. 

 -Those symptomatic or self-isolating are not permitted to attend. This includes returning travelers who are self-isolating.

 -We have closed our lounges, and are advising families not to bring food or beverages to the funeral home.

 -We will continue to monitor the situation and will update our policies as the need arises, keeping our families needs and public safety in mind.


Thank you for your understanding,

Robert Barrett
