Covid-19 has heavily impacted the practicalities of death in society

Our Centre for Death and Society (CDAS) Team Members curate a monthly collection of resources relating to the effects of Covid-19 on death and society.

We include guidance relating to Covid-19 for:

  • grief and bereavement support
  • funeral practices
  • social policy implications

These resources are both written work produced by CDAS staff and general information on Covid-19 from other organisations.

Other news, views, and initiatives on the coronavirus pandemic from around the University of Bath can be found on the COVID-19 news page.
