Funeral directors adapt to a new pandemic normal
December 14, 2020
An early riser, Willmar funeral director Nathan Streed usually begins his days around 6 a.m. and clocks out at 5:30 most evenings.
But recently his phone just keeps ringing, as COVID-19 continues to spread rapidly throughout Minnesota, claiming more than 4,400 lives and counting.
"You don't turn it off at night," said Streed, owner of Harvey Anderson and Johnson Funeral Homes, with six locations in central Minnesota. "It's always on your mind."
