Brittney Greene Interviewed by WMAR2NEWS Regarding COVID-19
RANDALLSTOWN, Md — Families, already grieving the loss of a loved one, are finding that their funerals have to be limited because of the social distancing order to stop the spread of COVID-19.
"This week, 10-20 families have been affected and that’s just here," said managing funeral director Brittney Greene.
Vaughn Greene Funeral Services in Randallstown can hold well over 300 people for celebration of life and funeral services, but with Gov. Hogan's executive order, they have to restrict them to only 50 people.
"Which is incredibly difficult to ask someone to celebrate their loved one in such a private way, for someone who may have had an incredibly public impact," said Greene.
Greene said the parlor will continue to be a safe space for families but now that means taking more precautions.
"This is a home for families who are experiencing loss so we don’t want that to stop. We have been ensuring that all the knobs are getting cleaned, that we are using all the products we need to use to keep this place clean and safe," said Greene.
