Marcy Teodoro orders cleanup of Marikina cemeteries despite ban on visits during ‘Undas’
Marikina Mayor Marcy Teodoro has ordered the cleanup of all cemeteries in the city for visitors who will be visiting their dead loved ones in the coming weeks.
Personnel from the City Environmental Management Office took charge of cleaning public cemeteries.
Teodoro said he wants to maintain the cleanliness of cemeteries in Marikina even if people cannot visit on All Saint’s Day on November 1 and All Soul’s Day on November 2.
Metro Manila mayors have agreed to close cemeteries on November 1 and 2 as a way to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
