At Ettinger Funeral Home, we care about your health

Our COVID-19 Pandemic response - updated July 2021

  • We are monitoring and abiding by provincial protocols in place for funeral services.
  • For an indoor event, such as a Visitation, Funeral Service or Reception, the limit is 50 per cent of normal capacity to a maximum of 150 again with physical distancing.  Our chapel capacity is 218 people, so under the current rules, we are able to accommodate a gathering of up to 109 people in our Shubenacadie location.
  • Outside events,  such as a graveside service, allows up to 250 attendees with physical distancing rules in place.
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.
