At Ettinger Funeral Home, we care about your health

Our COVID-19 Pandemic response

  •       We are monitoring and abiding by provincial protocols in place for funeral services.
  • For an event such as a graveside service outdoors, 250 people can attend with physical distancing rules in place.
  • For an indoor event, such as a Celebration of Life or funeral service, the limit is 50 per cent capacity to a maximum of 200, again with physical distancing.  Our chapel capacity is 218 people, so we are able to have a gathering of 109 persons in our chapel in Shubenacadie. 
  • Visitations and receptions are not permitted at this time.
Please note:  the use of non-medical masks and social distancing is mandatory while visiting our funeral home.

Thank you for your continued patience as we work through the challenges of this pandemic together.
