The Pasig City Workers wear their personal protective equipment while disinfecting the Pasig City Public Cemetery.
On Wednesday (October 13, 2021), Metro Manila started the implementation of shortened curfew hours from 12 midnight to 4 am due to the drop of active COVID-19 cases.
17 Metro Manila mayors unanimously agree to the proposal after the rate of COVID-19 cases continue to decline over the past few weeks, according to Metropolitan Manila Development Authority chair Benhur Abalos.
However, the Metro Manila Council restricts the access to public and private cemeteries as compliance to the health protocols and quarantine guidelines amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The Council has approved the resolutions restricting access to public and private cemeteries, memorial parks, and columbaria from October 29 to November 2. It would be the second year of restricted cemetery access.
The government wants to prohibit mass gatherings and prevent the possible spread of the coronavirus disease during the Undas season. Filipinos could still visit their departed loved ones before the date given.
Recently, the Facebook page “Philstar” has shared the photos of Pasig City Health Department Sanitary Permit Division employees wearing PPEs while disinfecting around the Pasig City Public Cemetery.
In the photos, it can be seen that the health personnel were spraying disinfectants along the path and apartments inside the cemetery. The city wants to ensure the safety of the residents who will visit their departed loved ones.
