Cavite Cemetery Rules And Guidelines Posted By Gov. Jonvic Remulla
CAVITE CEMETERY RULES AND GUIDELINES – Due to COVID-19 outbreak in the Philippines, several health protocols were imposed for residents who wish to visit the Cavite Cemetery.
According to Cavite Governor Jonvic Remulla, residents under 18-years-old are banned from entering the cemetery. Along with this, eating and selling of food in both public and private cemeteries were also not allowed.
Furthermore, Remulla emphasized that all public cemeteries, public and private, would be closed from October 28 to November 2. Usually, these areas are filled with people who want to visit their loved ones.
But, due to the viral outbreak, a mass gathering of this scale would only escalate the spread of COVID-19 in the Philippines. In a Facebook post, the governor said:
Bawal po ang kainan kahit sa mga pribado at sosyal na libingan. Mga alta, matutong makisama. Kung bawal ang kainan, lalong bawal ang inuman at lasingan. Bawal maglako ng mga pagkain at inumin sa sementeryo
Moreover, Karaoke and loud singing is also banned. Remulla emphasized that there had already been over 10,000 confirmed COVID-19 cases in Cavite. As such, he fears that this number could spike as “Undas” season looms closer.
Meanwhile, residents could still visit cemeteries from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. starting from October 1 to 27. Moreover, he noted that thought the guidelines strays from Filipino tradition, the onset of the coronavirus and the health of residents is of greater importance.
Alam ko po na hindi maka-Pilipino ang mga patakaran na ganito. Pero wala tayo magagawa. Kailangan malagpasan natin ang krisis na dulot ng COVID-19.
