HOUSTON - The Houston community is getting ready for the homegoing of George Floyd, who was celebrated in Minneapolis last week.
The Fountain of Praise Church will be hosting the memorial and funeral services this week. The church is located at 13950 Hillcroft Ave.
Those planning to attend the public viewing on Monday will have to abide by certain guidelines.
The public viewing begins at noon and will last until 6 p.m.
There are two nearby parking lots where people must park and then take a shuttle over to the church. The lots and shuttles are located at the FountainLife Center (14083 S. Main St. Houston, TX, 77035) and Kingdom Builders Center (6011 W. Orem Dr. Houston, TX, 77085).
When people arrive, they will be required to go through a metal detector. There will be a secondary hand search if they set it off. No one will be allowed to bring in bags.
Only fifteen guests will be allowed inside the church at one time to ensure social distancing.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, guests will go through a temperature check, and they will have to wear masks.
People will not be able to stop at the casket.
Church officials say casual attire is permitted.
The funeral will be held at 11 a.m. on Tuesday at The Fountain of Praise Church. The service is private.
Floyd will be buried at the Houston Memorial Gardens in Pearland, according to Pearland Police Department.
Police say drivers should anticipate Cullen Road to be closed to roadway traffic from Freedom Blvd to Clear Creek.
