COVID-19 Statement



Due to the ongoing COVID-19 Public Health Emergency restrictions on mass gatherings, we regret to advise that this year's cemetery service has been postponed until further notice. 

For those wishing to participate in the planting of our annual garden in memory of a loved one, we will have two drop off locations on Sunday, June 28th from 12pm to 3pm - one at Maher's Funeral Home, Placentia and another at the cemetery.

Individuals are reminded to practise safe distancing of six feet (two meters) at both drop off locations, and follow the public safety measures put in place by the provincial government for your safety and the safety of others. 




Our focus at Maher’s is always on providing comfort and care to our families who have lost loved ones. During these exceptional times we need to find ways for our families to grieve and start the healing process, while at the same time provide a safe and secure environment for them to do so.

In light of the recent COVID-19 pandemic and the Public Health Emergency declared on March 18, 2020, Maher’s has implemented the following practices and procedures:

  • Regular disinfecting of our public areas beyond our regular cleaning
  • Signage advising to avoid hand shaking and close personal contact
  • Signage advising of proper hand washing
  • We are recommending that people pay their respects by phone call or by offering online condolences through our web site and avoid visiting the funeral home
  • People who have travelled outside of the province in the last 14 days and anyone experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms are asked not to visit the funeral home

As per Dr. Janice Fitzgerald, the Chief Medical Officer for NL, as of March 30, 2020, visitations and funeral services are prohibited.

As of May 11, 2020, private family viewings are limited to ten (10) family members, and funeral services and burials will be limited to ten (10) individuals, including the officiant (some service restrictions may vary).

We will continue to monitor the situation and will update our policies as the need arises, keeping our families’ needs and public safety in mind.

Please continue to stay safe. You are in our thoughts and prayers. We will get through this difficult time together.
