Workers prep MSC for ‘Undas 2021’

A monkey is given a bath by its owner at the Manila South cemetery on Sunday, 10 Oct 2021 as Manila South Cemetery (MSC) workers clean the entrance of the graveyard in preparation for “Undas 2021.”

For the second straight year, however, because of the pandemic, the Manila City Hall announced that all public and private cemeteries will once again be closed from October 30 to November 3, 2021.

This is to curb the spread of Covid-19 as crowding and foot traffic on All Saints Day (Nov 1) and All Souls Day (Nov 2) are usually at their highest the director of MSC said, although, grave visitations of departed love ones is highly recommended before and after the restricted dates.
