CAN I GO TO A CEMETERY TO VISIT A GRAVE OR MEMORIAL?

You are encouraged to delay visiting a cemetery. To stop the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) everyone is being asked to stay at home.

Alternative ways to remember your loved ones while staying at home include lighting a candle or holding a virtual remembrance with family and friends.

If you do visit loved ones at the cemetery, please ensure that no more than your immediate household or two people (including you) are gathered. Physical distance has to be maintained by staying at least 1.5 metres apart.
