Caloocan City Administrator Engineer Oliver Hernandez said the local government aims to maintain the city’s downward trend in Covid-19 cases .

“Sinisikap natin na magtuloy-tuloy na ang pagbaba ng mga kaso ng Covid-19 sa lungsod kaya’t nililinaw natin na dapat ay fully vaccinated ang mga dadalaw sa kanilang mga yumaong kapamilya ngayong undas (We are trying to sustain the downward trend of Covid-19 cases in the city so we are making sure that those who will visit their deceased relatives should be fully vaccinated against Covid),” Hernandez said.

It also said that under the guidelines, vehicles are not allowed to enter the public cemeteries.

Bringing alcoholic beverages, sharp objects, sound systems, and gambling paraphernalia is also strictly prohibited.

“Hiling po natin ang inyong pakikiisa sa mga tuntunin ng pamahalaan para sa matiwasay na pagbisita sa inyong mga yumaong minamahal sa buhay (We ask for your cooperation with the government’s guidelines for a safe visit to your deceased loved ones),” Caloocan City Mayor Dale Gonzalo “Along” Malapitan.

The City Environmental Management Department and Public Safety Management Department had started to conduct clean-up, fogging, and hauling operations in the city’s public cemeteries in preparation for Undas 2022.
