The City’s Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases will impose again the Kalag-Kalag Passes as a requirement before one is allowed entry at the 7 private and public cemeteries tomorrow (November 5) to Saturday (November 7).
Those without Kalag-Kalag Passes issued by their respective barangays will not be allowed entry. The city adopted the Kalag-kalag passes to prevent mass gatherings and possible transmission of COVID-19.
Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo, Chairperson of the City IATF, ordered that the gates of cemeteries be guarded by enforcers to ensure that only those with passes are allowed entry.
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 food, No liquor allowed
No deadly, sharp and bladed weapons allowed
