  1. Retired undertaker here. No one really thinks much of “not telling” an undertaker when a cause of death is contagious. Back in the long, long ago, AIDS was ripping through Los Angeles and we would get “pneumonia” deaths of young men all the time. They told us, “use Universal Precautions.” Like we were going to gown up for a fully contagious case every time we handled someone? Just not practical. The stigma of dying from AIDS drove that deception. I wonder (besides lower numbers) what the motivation is now.
