QCOSTARICA – Almost on the eve of All Souls’ Day, also known as Day of the Dead, the Ministry of Health asked people who visit cemeteries to respect social distancing and wear a mask.

Visits to cemeteries are expected to increase this weekend in anticipation of All Souls’ Day or Day of the Dead, celebrated this Monday, November 2. The Ministry of Health asks those who visit cemeteries to do so while respecting physical distance and wearing a mask.

Although the day is on Monday, November 2, cemeteries expect an increase in visits during this weekend.

Health authorities have also repeatedly requested to avoid celebrations such as Halloween because they become high-risk scenarios for the transmission of this highly contagious coronavirus.
