A Funeral during the
Coronavirus Pandemic
- The Restrictions and Your Choices


“Needless to say, the coronavirus pandemic of 2020 is a challenging time for everyone. But if someone you love has died, it is likely that the current social distancing orders and travel restrictions are making funeral planning especially difficult for your family.” Alan D Wolfelt, Ph.D.

Faced with current Coronavirus pandemic concerns, in what is already a very difficult time, the team at Burstows are here to assist you every step of the way.

We welcome further easing of Covid-19 restrictions which will allow up to 200 people at funerals in Queensland.

The latest changes to government rules regarding gatherings in Queensland mean attendances of 200 people are possible at outside locations like a graveside or in a venue of 400m sq. or more. (Ratio applied to inside venues is 1 person per 2 m sq.)

At Burstows Toowoomba, this means 100 people can gather in our chapel, including service participants, with additional screens allowing 50 mourners to attend in our outdoor pavilion, plus another 50 in the portico area and outside the chapel.

The Pioneers Room will now cater for 70 people and guests are no longer limited to an allocated seat, however buffet is still not allowed, so guests will be served individually by staff. We welcome this opportunity to provide you with a safe place to talk, share your sadness and help you celebrate the life of your loved one.

To find out more about our services, including web-streaming for those unable to attend, and Hugs From Home, go to www.burstows.com.au or call us on 4636 9600 to discover how we can help make this a special, moving and healing experience for you, your family and friends.

The information in the Funeral Cost and Options PDF will provide you with an approximate price guide for a range of service combinations available during this time. In addition the links below will provide the most up to date Covid19 information from State Health.
