“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,” Caloocan City Administrator Oliver Hernandez said in a statement.

(We are aiming that the downward trend of COVID-19 cases in the city will continue, so we are clarifying that only fully vaccinated individuals can visit their departed loved ones this Undas).

In addition, people with body temperatures  37.5 °C and above will be given a 10-minute rest before rechecking them to allow leeway for weather conditions, said City Health Department Officer-in-charge Evelyn Cuevas.

If their temperatures do not go down, they will not be allowed to proceed inside.

Vehicles are not allowed inside the cemetery, said the Caloocan LGU. Alcoholic beverages, sharp objects, sound systems, and gambling paraphernalia are also prohibited inside the cemetery grounds.

The Caloocan LGU has allowed the cleaning and painting of graves until October 25.

“Hiling po natin ang inyong pakikiisa sa mga tuntunin ng pamahalaan para sa matiwasay na pagbisita sa inyong mga yumaong minamahal sa buhay,” Caloocan City Mayor Dale Gonzalo Malapitan said.

(We ask for your cooperation in heeding the local government guidelines for an orderly visit to your late loved ones).
