Cemeteries & Crematoria Under Lockdown
Under COVID-19, the Government's rules for viewings, funerals and burials, developed by the Ministry of Health, are available online. The key messages include: no public funeral services, Tangi or private family funeral services.
In this latest INSIGHTS case study we review the key elements of the new rules, offer some insights learned from the 2019 Christchurch burials, and provide some high level advice so that people managing cemeteries and crematoria can plan ahead. This insights paper is based on the recent NZCCC webinar, also available to view online.
