Sri Singh Sahba Gurdwara, Reading – Guidance for Funerals (dated 27 March 2020).
Based upon government strict guidelines, funerals will continue to be conducted, however many protective measures have to be put in place at funeral homes, crematorium, Gurdwara (and other places of worship) which we must all strictly adhered to, at all times.Funeral homes have been provided very strict government guidelines, which they must adhere to in order to protect there facility, staff and the public.Each crematorium has a stipulated maximum number of people that can attend the crematorium service. And all individuals must follow the governments mandatory guidelines, at all times.
In places of worship (which applied to our Gurughar) that are already shut down, all necessary measures must be in place, to safeguard the health and welfare of any employees that are living on the premises. Any and all interaction with the public must be strictly limited and anyone visiting must be wearing a mask and gloves, and the same rules apply to the employees when interacting with ‘any’ member of the public. At all times the ‘social distancing rule of 2 metres’ must be adhered.
Based upon the size and internal structure of Reading Gurughar, the maximum number of individuals attending the bhog and kirtan will be based strictly upon the number of people that are allowed/permitted, to attend the crematorium service. This is for the health and safety of all individuals, and in particular the 3 paathi employees that are residing at our Gurughar.
Please respect these requirements and we will work with you, during this very difficult times.Should you have any questions or need additional information/ support, please do not hesitate to contact the Management Committee Pardaan Mr Malkiat Singh Gill on 07977098889 / Trsutees President Mr Manjit Singh Dhothar on 07704774872.
