Notice from Health Department

Funeral Directors in Upshur County: 

  • Clutter Funeral and Cremation 
  • Heavner & Cutright Funeral Chapel 
  • Poling - St. Clair Funeral Home and Crematory 

Hello to All, 

Per Dr. Reed, MD, Medical Director of the Upshur- Buckhannon Health Department, it is recommended that limits are placed on visitations and funerals, during this time of increasing positive Cases of COVID- 19. 

We are asking to keep limits to 25 persons, including staff, and everyone should wear masks. If possible, a rooster or copy of the Registration Book, be kept on hand incase of an outbreak related to a service, that way we will be able to do a better job of case investigations and contract tracing. It would only need to be stored for approximately 30 days. 

Thank you for your willingness to comply.
