**Covid-19 restrictions in Philadelphia currently require our business to operate at 25% capacity, which is approximately 15 people at a time in our parlor (this includes the family we are serving and our staff). Families will either choose to stand and greet guest, or remain seated. If the family chooses to remain seated please understand that they are grateful for those who came to express their sympathies, but do not want to have any physical contact. Upon arrival we ask you to form a line outside the front door under the long canopy on Verree Rd. and our staff will let you know when we have room to let each small group in one at a time. You will be required to wear a mask and sanitize your hands upon entering. You can then sign the register book and file by the family to pay your respects. We are asking everyone to then exit out the BACK door into the parking lot to maintain a one way flow of traffic. Thank you for understanding the temporary changes that currently need to be in place and we assure you we are all looking forward to our traditions and gatherings being able to go back to normal very soon.
