Santa Clara Mission Cemetery

and COVID-19.

With the rapidly changing events of the COVID-19 virus, it is more important than ever that families and funeral homes speak with our staff regarding service information, restrictions, and scheduling.

At this time, the cemetery continues to provide at-need burial services and we are endeavoring to finalize all arrangements over the phone. Should it be necessary for an office visit, families will be seen by appointment and we are asking that no more than 2 people attend the arrangement conference.

Like so many others, the cemetery is having to make difficult and challenging decisions as we all adjust to this COVID-19 crises. Finding the right balance of safety and service while operating under the shelter in place order is difficult at best.

So that the cemetery staff can continue provide burial services for our families, the cemetery grounds are now closed to the public during normal business hours. Until further notice, the cemetery grounds will be open for visitation as follows:

Monday through Saturday: 4 PM to 6 PM


Sunday: 2 PM to 6 PM

Although we are allowing limited hours for visitation, all interior spaces including all mausoleums and restrooms are closed and social distancing mandates will be strictly enforced.

If you have any questions, please call 408-296-4656.

Thank you for your understanding as we all navigate our way through this pandemic crises.
