Covid-19 Information

To Our Community,

We at Wagner and Walsh Funeral Directors want the families we serve to be safe, educated, and informed regarding updates with the coronavirus/COVID-19.

Governor Gretchen Whitmer has announced that as of June 22, 2021, capacity in both indoor and outdoor settings will increase to 100% and the state will no longer require residents to wear a face mask. As such, there will be no attendance or mask restrictions at Wagner and Walsh Funeral Directors. However, other locations such as churches or luncheon halls may be self-implementing restrictions, and we will advise our families as needed.

 

FEMA COVID-19 Funeral Assistance Program

The U.S. Government recently announced that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will introduce a program to reimburse families for COVID-19 funeral expenses incurred beginning January 20, 2020.

To be eligible for COVID-19 Funeral Assistance, the policy states: 

 

The applicant must be a U.S. citizen, non-citizen national, or qualified alien who incurred funeral expenses after Jan. 20, 2020 for a death attributed to COVID-19.

 

The deceased does not have to be a U.S. citizen.

 

The COVID-19-related death must have occurred in the United States, including the U.S. territories and the District of Columbia.
