‘Kalag-kalag 2022’ Curfew imposed in public cemeteries


CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY Mayor Rolando ‘Klarex’ Uy issued a directive imposing a 10 p.m. visiting curfew in all public cemeteries here during the observance of the “All Saints Day and All Souls Day” on Nov. 1, 2022.

In an Executive Order No. 099 dated Oct. 19, 2022, the City Executive also spelled out the guidelines in observing the “All Saints and All Souls Day” in all public and private memorial parks to strictly observe health protocols like social distancing, wearing of face masks and the installation of hand washing facilities to mitigate the possible spread of COVID 19 virus.

Aside from prohibiting alcoholic beverages, musical instruments, backpacks, bladed weapons and other blunt objects, the executive order also prohibits an overnight stay in all cemeteries and memorial parks here.

Along this line, Uy instructed the local police to assign law enforcers to all public cemeteries and private memorial parks to ensure the safety of the revelers while directing the “barangay tanods” to augment the police.

The management of the city’s memorial park, the largest public cemetery located in Bolonsori, Camaman-an, this city, also assigned specific parking areas for vehicles and commercial stalls to avoid traffic congestion.

Aside from the over crowded city memorial park, which also allocated an specific burial site to victims of COVID 19 virus, three other overcrowded public cemeteries in the city would be an object of stricter monitoring here.

There are also four high-end large private memorial parks in Cagayan de Oro City that experience heavy vehicular and human traffic during the observance of the “All Saints Day” and “All Souls Day.”
