Several residents have already visited the graves of their loved ones on the first day of the implementation of Kalag-Kalag passes to be allowed entry in the public and private cemeteries in the City.
Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo, Chairperson of the City Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases, ordered for the gates of cemeteries be barricaded by enforcers to ensure only those with passes are allowed entry while some roads have been re-routed from October 20 to 28 and November 5 to 7, 2020.
The city adopted the Kalag-kalag passes to prevent mass gatherings and possible transmission of COVID-19.
Pursuant to Executive Order No. 22 signed by Mayor Remollo, a resident can only get a Kalag-Kalag Pass once.
To obtain a Kalag-Kalag Pass and be allowed entry in the cemeteries, residents must:
1. Request a Kalag-kalag pass at the Barangay Hall
2. Present the pass at the entrance of the cemeteries
3. Always wear face masks and practice social distancing
4. Submit to thermal scanning and use disinfectants
5. Observe the one-hour allotted time for visit
6. Exit at the designated areas in an orderly manner
Additional reminders:
No Kalag-Kalag Pass, No Entry
No food, No liquor allowed
No deadly, sharp and bladed weapons allowed
Be guided by the traffic routing scheme
In compliance to the national directive, all cemeteries will be closed to the public from October 29 to November 4, 2020.
