Apart from the Filipino tradition of remembering their departed loved ones, Undas also serves as a way for families to spend time together.

Thousands of Filipinos are expected to visit cemeteries this year, especially now that the government has relaxed the minimum health protocols.

This is the first Undas since the pandemic to implement the “optional” use of a face mask outside or in open spaces.

Here are the “protocols” or guidelines that some local governments will implement to ensure that visitors to cemeteries are orderly and safe:


The Manila Public Information Office announced that Manila North Cemetery and Manila South Cemetery will be open from 5:00 AM to 5:00 PM from Saturday, October 29 to Wednesday, November 2. They have also posted on social media some of the items that are not permitted to be brought into the cemetery, such as sharp objects, alcoholic beverages, flammable materials, and many others.


In cemeteries, memorial parks, and columbaria, Pasig City will implement “no face mask, no entry.” They also posted a schedule of each cemetery’s operating hours in their area.


Cavite will construct “command posts” in city cemeteries and will provide free services to visitors through their “kAAlalay sa Undas” program. This includes a charging station, free texts and calls, free coffee and water, wheelchair assistance, and a variety of other amenities.


Cebu City has launched “Oplan Kalag-Kalag,” which will run from October 5 to November 5. According to the guidelines, the cemeteries will be open from 5 AM to 6 PM, and the only people who can enter are those between the ages of 18 and 65 who have been vaccinated against COVID-19. Cebu City will also limit visits to cemeteries.


Davao City will strictly enforce adherence to minimum public health standards, particularly the use of face masks. The city also prohibits overnight stays in cemeteries and the playing of loud music.
