Vosseteig Funeral Homes Press Release Re: COVID-19

The health and safety of our guests and employees is our top priority. We want to assure you that Vosseteig Funeral Home is taking proactive measures to help prevent the spread of any potential illness. We are closely monitoring the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and World Health Organization’s statements, along with Wisconsin Department of Health Services, regarding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) cases and following guidelines from these agencies and our local health departments.

Beginning Tuesday, March 17, Governor Tony Evers announced an emergency order banning mass gatherings of 10 people or more. Funeral homes are not exempt from this. This presents an obvious challenge in gathering families for funeral services. Recognizing loss is a human instinct and is a vital component to the healing process. Simply put, funerals are important. Yet, in times of critical health importance, we stand with these difficult decisions made to protect public health.

We are handling this situation by honoring family requests, and please know we are not cancelling any events. However, events will need to be limited to 10 people in our facilities at a time.

Please make an extra effort to support those that have lost a loved one during this time. Your support is more important than ever with the added stress of these extraordinary circumstances. For those who refrain from coming for any events you are encouraged to leave messages for the family on our website, www.vossfh.com or on our Facebook page.

Losing a friend or family member is never easy, and we are very aware that these unsettling times can amplify feelings of grief and anxiety. Please know that we are here for anything else you may need to honor life, support loved ones, and initiate the healing process. Do not hesitate to reach out with concerns, questions, or if you need someone to talk to we are here day and night for our community.

Our prayers go out to those affected by the recent changes.

*****We request that guests who are experiencing any cold or flu-like symptoms including fever, cough and shortness of breath or have been in contact with or have recently traveled to any of the affected countries refrain from visiting the funeral home at this time*****

Please free to call us with any questions. (608) 637-2100
