As of April 2, 2020
Riverside Cemetery prioritizes the health and well-being of our lot owners, families and staff. We understand this is a fluid situation and are monitoring and evaluating developments of the coronavirus (COVID-19).
In an effort to comply with the shelter-in-place order from the CDC and Governor Brian Kemp’s office, the cemetery will conduct burials with limited attendance applying the 10 person or less rule at a service. All services will be strictly private.
In addition, the cemetery office will remain closed to visitors. Signatures and payments required for burial will be executed via email and/or fax. Cemetery staff will continue to monitor the phone and will be available to answer any questions or concerns you may have. The office number is (478) 742-5328.
Maintenance operations will be reviewed daily and may be suspended without notice. This course of action will NOT be implemented without serious consideration and evaluation of all relevant matters to include the health and safety of our staff.
Understanding that our services are essential but realizing that the well being and safety of our staff and others involved in the burial process are of primary concern, we reluctantly impose these restrictions.
