On November 1, the cemeteries will probably be open, Health Minister Adam Niedzielski said on Tuesday. The day before, when asked about the restrictions during the All Saints period, he pointed out that they will certainly not be introduced overnight, as it was the case last year, when the epidemic situation in the country was very difficult.
In an interview with RMF FM, the head of the Ministry of Health was asked about the possible closure of cemeteries during the All Saints celebrations. This decision – due to the pandemic and the growing number of infections – was made by the government last year.
– This time there will be no surprises – said the minister, speaking about November 1 and the period around All Saints’ Day. He pointed out that thanks to vaccinations, the current epidemic situation is different. – We have many more safeguards – he said and added that thanks to them the situation should not get much worse overnight.
When asked whether the cemeteries would be open during the holidays, the minister said “most likely yes”.
On Monday, during his visit to Szczecin, Niedzielski was asked if they would appear this year restrictions on All Saints. The minister said the government did not envisage making “urgent decisions” as it was last year when it closed the cemeteries overnight.
