Cemeteries closed Oct. 30-Nov. 2

BY GILBERT P. BAYORAN

All memorial parks, cemeteries and columbaries in Negros Occidental will be closed again to the public from October 30 to November 2, as COVID-19 active cases have shown no sign of decreasing.

Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson yesterday issued an executive order imposing the temporary closure of all public cemeteries and private memorial parks and columbaries all over the province from October 30 until November 2 this year.

Because of the constant rise in the number of COVID-19 cases in the province, Lacson said there is a compelling reason to regulate the operation of all memorial parks, cemeteries and columbaries over the province, in order to avoid mass gatherings and prevent the outbreak of COVID-19 .

Last year, memorial parks, as well as public and private cemeteries were also off limits to visitors.

The Provincial Incident Management logged 4,418 active cases in Negros Occidental as of October 14.

Lacson ordered all component cities and municipalities to comply with his issued executive order through their respective disaster risk reduction and management offices and traffic management authorities with the assistance of the Philippine National Police and their force multipliers.

Negros Occidental remains under general community quarantine (GCQ) until October 31.*
