PUBLIC and private memorial parks, cemeteries, and columbaries in the nation’s capital will be temporarily closed from October 29 to November 3, Manila City Mayor Isko Moreno ordered last September 29.


The mayor signed Executive Order No. 33 ordering the closure of Manila North Cemetery, Manila South Cemetery, and Manila Muslim Cemetery among others in relation to this year’s Undas.


Under Moreno’s executive order, only “interment and cremation services for non-COVID 19 case shall be allowed subject to the strict observance of minimum public health standards and social distancing.”


“The Directors of the Manila Cemeteries, with the assistance of the Manila Police District, the Manila Health Department, the Manila Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office, and the Department of Public Services are directed to ensure compliance and implementation of this Order,” the order stated.


Moreno said that failure to comply with EO 33 shall lead to the revocation of its Mayor and business permits.
