Motril cemetery reopens with some restrictions during Phase One of the Spanish government’s Covid-19 de-escalation programme.
MOTRIL’S municipal cemetery, closed since March 14, reopens on Tuesday, May 11. This coincides with the transition to Phase 1 of the national government’s State of Alarm de-escalation, which also allows vigils, funeral services and burials limited to small family groups, always maintaining the required distancing regulations.
“The limits on bidding farewell to loved ones have increased the emotional pressure for families that have suffered a loss,” town hall sources said. “But it is essential to continue insisting on strict compliance with health regulations, once the cemetery reopens.”
The town hall thanked in advance all those who would be visiting the cemetery for “scrupulously observing” the health authorities’ health and safety recommendations. These are in place to protect the population in general as well as the families who have lost a relative and the municipal employees working there.
