Manila South Cemetery off-limits Oct 28

Manila South Cemetery Director Raffy Mendez uses a megaphone as he makes his rounds to remind informal settlers and vendors inside MSC to leave and vacate the area before the morning of October 28, 2020.

Manila Mayor Isko Moreno has issued a local Executive Order regarding the closure of the public cemetery on the abovementioned date until November 05 to avoid traditional mass gatherings as people visit the tombs of departed loved ones on All Souls’ Day and All Saints’ Day November 1 and 2, respectively.

Mendez said his office will strictly implement the order down to the letter in compliance with Covid-19 protocols even as he advised the public to visit the graves of departed love ones early or before October 28, 2020.
