Metro Manila mayors approved a decision to close cemeteries from October 29 to November 2 for Undas.

In a resolution dated Sunday but was released to the media Tuesday, the MMC said that memorial parks and cemeteries had been ordered close from October 29 to November 2, 2021.

MMDA chairman Benhur Abalos said in a press briefing that the said resolution aimed to prevent “superspreader” events during the observance of Undas or All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day.

Instead of going to the cemetery on November 1, ang gagawin na lang natin pumunta na, ngayon pa lang dumalaw na. I-spread na natin sa maraming araw para ‘wag magkahawaan,” Abalos said.

According to the resolution, the cemeteries and memorial parks were subject to a 30% capacity limitation.

The resolution also stated that as for the conduct of necrological services, wakes, funerals, cremation, internment, and increment during the five-day period, the prescribed guidelines set by the Inter-Agency Taskforce for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-MEID) shall govern.

Metro Manila mayors were expected to make executive orders and ordinances to enact the resolution.

Metro Manila mayors also agreed to impose unified curfew hours between 12:00 midnight and 4:00 am starting October 13, 2021 as the growth of coronavirus infections continued to slow.

However, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority reminded the public that minimum health protocols should still be observed despite the easing of the current 10:00 pm – 4:00 am curfew.
