COVID-19 Update - April 14, 2020

MFDA Covid-19 Update for Tuesday, April 14: MEMA has been distributing PPE to funeral establishments and deliveries should be completed by Friday. Quantities are probably lower than you requested. We've also asked MEMA for a list of what is NOT available to help you plan to order elsewhere. We also address disinfectant alternatives; potential sources for PPE; provide information about the Payroll Protection Program Loan Forgiveness Requirements; provided insight from New York/New Jersey colleagues on finding alternate crematories. New procedures for witnessing internments at all VA National Cemeteries start April 15; Funeral Service students may be able to take their pending tests; we provided the latest numbers for surge prediction and Massachusetts cases.
