Yesterday, through its social networks, the Government of Rosarito Beaches gave the news that the municipality will open one of its public cemeteries so that citizens can remember their loved ones this Day of the Dead.
The public cemetery we are talking about is the Ejido Mazatlan and will be open on November 1 and 2 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. However, they have important restrictions for the safety of those attending.
You will only be able to spend a maximum of 40 minutes on your visit. You must take the corresponding sanitary measures such as face masks and maintain a healthy distance at all times. Likewise, only groups of a maximum of 10 members will be allowed.
For its part, Tijuana will keep its graveyards closed on the Day of the Dead, as announced by the Secretary of Health of Baja California, Alonso Perez Rico. This is because an opening "would entail a risk [...] of increasing the number of cases in the beginning of November".
Public and private cemeteries will be able to open in Ensenada, Tecate and Rosarito, while those in Tijuana and Mexicali will remain closed. What do you think of this? Did you have a tradition of visiting cemeteries on the Day of the Dead? Leave us your comments.
