Assisting families and friends with their loss is our privilege and honor as funeral directors. Given the reality of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is important to know that we are taking precautions to limit exposure to the coronavirus. We are still operating 24 hours a day, seven days a week making certain that those entrusted to our care and the families we serve are receiving uninterrupted service and attention, regardless of the cause of death.

As health officials have indicated, one way to control the spread of the COVID-19 virus is through limiting public gatherings.
As of March 16, 2020, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has recommended limited gatherings to 10 people or less. 

Executive Order #141 (Section 4), affirmed by Governor Roy Cooper on May 22, 2020, reads as follows:

Worship, religious, and spiritual gatherings, funeral ceremonies, wedding ceremonies, and other activities constituting the exercise of First Amendment rights are exempt from all the requirements of this Executive Order and Executive Order Nos. 121 and 138, notwithstanding any other provision of this Executive Order or of Executive Order Nos. 121 and 138. The undersigned strongly urges that entities and individuals engaging in these exempted activities follow the Recommendations to Promote Social Distancing and Reduce Transmission, avoid exceeding Emergency Maximum Occupancy in the places where they meet, and avoid holding Mass Gatherings. 

We will post obituary information on our website and encourage friends to offer their condolences by reaching out to the family via phone, leaving a message on our website, or mailing a card. Additionally, we are encouraging all our families to hold a more public ceremony at a later date allowing the general public the opportunity to express their condolences.

The health and safety of our guests and employees is our top priority. We want to assure you that the Walker's staff is taking proactive measures to help prevent the spread of any potential illness. We are closely monitoring the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and World Health Organization's statements regarding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) cases and following guidelines from these agencies and the local health departments.
