ALERT !!!!!   COVID-19

May 1, 2020

Effective Immediately for all Barnes Funeral Home locations.

Our family at Barnes Funeral Home has had the honor of serving the Preble County communities for over 100 years. Your health and the health of our families is of the utmost importance to us. We are making every effort in our cleaning practices at our locations to address common areas such as doors, countertops and restrooms. We are asking that you please observe the following requests.

If you feel sick and are uncertain about any possible exposure you may have had or if you fall within more vulnerable groups: Older individuals that suffer with Chronic health conditions that include: Heart Disease, Lung Disease, Diabetes & Pregnant Women. Please consider NOT attending any services.

If you do attend any service, please keep your distance and practice “Social Distancing”. The CDC recommends at least a distance of 6 feet. 

As of March 19, 2020, the recommendation of the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the Trump Administration is to keep gatherings to less than 10 persons. Ohio Department of Health (ODH) Director Dr. Amy Acton, has prohibited mass gatherings over 50, while exempting funeral services. Although Governor DeWine offers the exemption to funeral service, he fervently recommends we hold small private memorials. Please LIMIT the following: Hugging, Kissing, Handshaking and the amount of time you spend in our facility with the family and others.


Thank you for your cooperation and understanding. The Family and Staff of Barnes Funeral Homes, Inc.
