COVID – 19 Phase 2 for Funerals

Phase 2 will come into effect from Monday 18 May 2020.

Up to 20 attendees can attend a funeral indoors or 30 attendees for outdoor services unless an exemption is approved. (Please refer to the Department of Local Government, Sports, and Cultural Industries website for how to apply for an exemption). These numbers do not include the persons necessary to conduct the service.

Mourners attending must have their names registered by the Funeral Director.

When arranging the venue, the facility must be able to accommodate the social distance and public gathering rules which require at least 4 square metres per person.
