COVID-19 and Autopsies
With the fluid news of the pandemic, we receive many questions about if we can continue to perform services, test for the presence of COVID-19 in the deceased, and much more. Private Autopsy, Inc. is dedicated to keeping all involved in the services safe while being able to conduct thorough independent autopsy services.
The hardest hit areas of New York, Washington, and California, among others have caused funeral homes to change their protocol, in effect altering our abilities. Some funeral homes in New York decline to have our pathologists perform services at their locations because they have been at capacity. Others have declined in order to limit the spread of COVID-19.
With that being said, we are still performing independent autopsies throughout the nation, toxicology services, and we have the ability to test for COVID-19 being present in the deceased.
If you have any questions regarding the cause of death for your loved one or client, we are here to assist.
