Numbers 19

My Hebrew isn’t great and while I’m probably not thrilled with the Jewish Publication Society translation, it implies anyone remaining unclean from contact with a corpse is subject to karet – cut off from Israel.

Online sources these days are what they are, obviously burial societies somehow continue to function in and beyond Israel while all this is cited as justification for caution in the Temple reconstruction – I should be trying harder to read on my own but where’s the context if this applies only to kohanim and so on – is that what allows burials to function?

I’m without the commentaries; some pointers would be helpful.
