TRECE MARTIRES CITY, Cavite — With his usual jolly mood, Cavite cautioned his constituents on excessive eating and drinking liquor while inside the cemeteries to visit their departed loved ones that the provincial government of Cavite on Thursday set between October 1 to 27, between 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
“Yung mga kalalakihan na miyembro ng Alyansa “V” ay hinay-hinay lang. Kapag nagsabay-sabay ang sobrang kain, inom, sigarilyo, at ‘exercise’ ay baka ikamatay o ika-paralisa pa ninyo ito. Kaunti na nga lang ang pogi sa mundo, mababawasan pa,” Remulla said in jest in his Facebook post.
Remulla announced that the the cemeteries in the province at the cemeteries are closed from October 28 to Nov. 2.
The governor noted that with the pandemic and more than 10,000 Caviteños were tested positive of the novel coronavirus disease (Covid-19), the wearing of face masks and face shield is a must and social distancing should be observed while inside the cemeteries.
Loud karaoke singing is also banned.
“Tiyak na karamihan sa mga nakatatanda ay hindi mapipigilang dumalaw sa nitso. Ang mga kabataan naman ay puedeng mahawa, maging asymptomatic at kapag minamalas ay magkalat pa ng lagim sa kani-kanilang bahay,” Remulla warned.
He added that selling of foods and drinks is also strictly prohibited.
The governor clarified that the municipal and city governments will issue their respective guidelines on the number of people allowed inside the cemeteries.
“Kailangan naka-face mask at face shield. Mag-ingat lamang sa mga aksidente lalo na sa pagsindi ng kandila dahil ang face shield ay gawa sa plastic,” Remulla said.
He added that children below 18 years old are not allowed because of their susceptibilility of getting infected with Covid-19.
“Alam ko po na hindi maka-Pilipino ang mga patakaran na ganito. Pero wala tayo magagawa. Kailangan malagpasan natin ang krisis na dulot ng Covid-19,” Remulla concluded.
