Interior Secretary Eduardo Año ordered all local government units and police chiefs to ensure that all private and public cemeteries, memorial parks, and columbariums are closed during Undas, according to a report by GMA News.

In a statement, Año reminded that cemeteries are closed from October 29 to November 4, meaning any form of mass gatherings are not allowed.

“September pa lang po nagbigay na ng kautusan ang Pangulo. We expect all LGUs to cooperate by ensuring that cemeteries within their localities are closed. Ito’y para walang mass gathering ngayong panahon ng pandemya,” Año said.

He further ordered all police commanders across the country to help ensure that all cemeteries are compliant to quarantine protocols.

He said all local chief executives and local police commanders should have discussed the rules that would be implemented per locality, noting that all these should conform to the guidelines set by the national government.

The number of visitors in cemeteries, memorial parks, and columbariums shall be limited to only 30% of the venue’s capacity, with all those entering required to wear face masks and face shields, and observe physical distancing, according to Año.

Police assistance desks must also be created, he added.

Año expressed unity with all Filipinos in the observance of Undas, however, he called for cooperation as the threat of COVID-19 is still there.

"The DILG is one with the Filipino people in remembering our deceased loved ones in the coming All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Days.  During the pandemic, we are asking for the people’s cooperation by not going to the cemeteries, staying at home on October 29 to November 4, 2020 and visiting their departed relatives days before or weeks after the closure,”  he said.
