More About A Message from Elmwood Chapel about COVID-19 and Visitations

COVID-19 UPDATE – 3/21/2020:
As we follow the COVID-19 situation, there are daily changes. As funeral professionals we will continue to be OPEN and here to serve our communities.

During this difficult time we need to stick together. Funerals and memorials help bring us closer to provide comfort when we need it most. Even though you might not be able to pay your respects in person we encourage you to leave a message of condolence online or send families a card or flowers. Anything sent to our funeral home will be delivered to the family.

Unfortunately we can no longer offer any public visitations or services as we continue to battle COVID-19. Only 10 immediate family members will be allowed to visit with their loved ones at our funeral homes. All services including cemetery services will be private. We encourage families to consider more public memorial services once the health environment is safe.

We can all do our part to help stop the spread of COVID-19 by practicing social distancing. We will still continue to provide the highest possible level of service to our families, but their health and safety and the safety of our staff is the most important.

As we move through these uncertain times, we want you to know that we are taking precautions to keep you and your loved ones safe. The health and safety of our client families is always top priority.

We at Elmwood Funeral Chapel and Crematory are following the guidelines provided by the CDC, Illinois/Indiana Departments of Public Health, along with the Cook/Lake County. We always strive to provide the best service to our families and will continue that service during this time. We are also in close contact with our local churches and community centers and will work with them to provide the best services possible.

We are taking extra precautions as well. We have increased the cleaning of our facilities and have also provided hand sanitizing stations. We urge you to follow the CDC recommendations and stay at home if you are feeling sick and increase hand-washing for 20 seconds. Please visit the CDC’s website for more information: click for details

Stop handshaking – use other non-contact methods of greeting

Clean hands at the door and schedule regular hand washing reminders by email

Create habits and reminders to avoid touching their faces and cover coughs and sneezes

Disinfect surfaces like doorknobs, tables, desks, and handrails regularly

Increase ventilation by opening windows or adjusting air conditioning

Please reach out if you have any questions.

Sincerely,
The Betkowski Family

More About this Event Poster: Elmwood Funeral Chapel

Family, respect, honor, professionalism, and compassion drive the Betkowski family every day and enable us to bring those precious commodities to families and friends when in deepest need. When Jim & Lu Betkowski first opened Elmwood Chapel on Chicago’s East Side in 1989, they could little appreciate what their shared devotion and dream would bring in return.

In those 26 years of meeting the needs of those in need and the contributions of many friends and family, Jim & Lu expanded Elmwood Chapel by opening their funeral home in St. John, Indiana to serve their many friends and family, who also relocated their homes and families to Northwest Indiana.

Jim & Lu were further helped along when their sons, Jim, Joe, and Matt who made a career commitment to join the family business. As a result the Betkowski’s were now able to meet a growing community need and open up a third funeral service funeral home with an on-site crematory in Cedar Lake, Indiana. The on-site crematory will enable the Betkowski family to assure you that your loved one will never leave our care whether your services are held on the East Side, St. John, or Cedar Lake. The Betkowski family remains committed to their bedrock principles of family, respect, honor, professionalism, and compassion and are deeply honored to be able to bring that commitment to all their locations.
