Throughout the entire pandemic, we at Baird Funeral Home have followed the required mandates and recommendations for the state of Ohio in reference to funerals and gatherings. We have maintained safety protocols and our facilities are set up to accommodate socially distanced seating as best as possible. Facial coverings and social distancing continue to be respected for all those in attendance. As always, please do not attend a funeral or visitation if you are sick or experiencing possible symptoms. Our priority is for the safety of all in attendance as the bereaved families go through their time of loss.
