Cegan, J., Trump, B., Joyner, M., et al. (2021). A Systems Approach for Resources Management During the COVID-19 Pandemic: Multi-Agency Perspectives from New England. (Abstract only.) Journal of Emergency Management. 18(7):209-223.
This article discusses the approach New England states took to distribute resources when they were faced with an increased need for cremation and burial services due to COVID-19.
