1st ARISE Virtual Annual General Membership Meeting Focused On Business Resilience

Operators of cemeteries, memorial parks, and columbariums in this city were told to be vigilant to ensure that visitors adhere to strict health and safety protocols amid the continuing threat of coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19).

The directive is provided in Executive Order (EO) 61 issued by Mayor Evelio Leonardia on Saturday imposing closure of these places from Oct. 29 to Nov. 4, in compliance with Resolution 72 dated Sept. 17 of the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID).

“Implement strict measures in limiting the influx and crowding of people visiting in the days prior to and after the temporary closure days up to a maximum of 30 percent of the venue capacity, coupled with the strict compliance of health protocols, such as wearing of face mask and face shield and the observance of physical distancing,” part of the Section 2 stated.

Operators and owners were also directed to widely disseminate information on the hours their facilities are open to visitors so they can also observe the prevailing curfew hours, as well as ensure that no visitor shall stay overnight.

“Frequently make announcements through public address systems or park staff to remind visitors to always wear face mask and face shield, and observe physical distancing,” the directive added.

Moreover, Leonardia asked the Philippine National Police and the Philippine Army, as well as the traffic enforcers, barangay tanods, and other force multipliers, to assist in the maintenance of peace and order, and smooth flow of traffic in the cemeteries and memorial parks.

In Bacolod, there are about 11 cemeteries, including three owned by the city government — the Bacolod North Cemetery in Barangay Villamonte and two others in Barangay Granada and Barangay Alijis.

At least eight are private cemeteries and memorial parks located across the city. (PNA)
