Tagbilaran City Government Releases Safety and Health Protocols for Undas Compliance

CITY OF TAGBILARAN – The city government has issued health and safety protocols in time for the national observance of “Kalag-Kalag” or Undas next week.

According to guidelines issued by the Tagbilaran City Government, residents are allowed to visit from October 30 to November 2 from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.

The “no night pass” would be observed at Taloto Catholic Cemetery, Dampas Catholic Cemetery, Victoria Memorial Park, Serenity Park and Tagbilaran City Public Cemetery.

The use of huge speakers, karaoke or any device producing loud music is strictly prohibited, unless intended for religious services.

It is strictly forbidden to smoke, gamble and bring alcoholic beverages and sharp objects.

“Wearing face masks in crowded places or areas is strongly encouraged, especially for those who are unvaccinated, not fully vaccinated, the elderly and those with compromised immune systems,” the city government reminded.

Meanwhile, the Bohol Provincial Police Bureau (BPPO) will send at least 832 police officers to secure public and private cemeteries during the observance of Undas to ensure that Undas 2022 will be without incident in the province of Bohol.

Outgoing BPPO Provincial Police Director Colonel Osmundo Salibo said there would be at least 1,757 force multipliers such as Barangay tanod, Lingkod Bayan Advocacy Support Groups, Patrolya ng Bayan, Alpha Kappa Rho and Tau Gamma Phi/Sigma.

Another 352 members of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) 47th Infantry Battalion will be used to ensure that all security measures are in place.

The full deployment of police will take place a day before “Kalag-Kalag”, when people are expected to visit their deceased relatives in cemeteries.

The BPPO will also secure other gathering places such as churches, shopping malls, public transport terminals and tourist destinations that people are expected to visit during the long weekend. — BAP and GMA News
