NIJZ (National Institute of Public Health  https://nijz.si/) has published a paper on coping with the loss of loved ones.

“When someone dies during an epidemic, the special circumstances and measures usually make the grieving process difficult. Loved ones may not be able to be with the dying person in a hospital or nursing home, to say goodbye as they would like, or to meet with friends and family for basic mutual support due to measures to maintain physical distance; and children and adolescents in particular face many issues. The bereaved need (our) support even more in these times.

That is why the NIJZ has put together some materials with guidance on how to talk about loss and how to be helpful to the bereaved in different ways, even in an epidemic:

In addition to the COVID-19 bereavement support materials, the website also offers a collection of other materials that can help you cope with low mood, various distresses, fears, sleep problems, depressed mood, etc.”
