The mayor responsible for Health has explained that this year "there will be personnel in charge of accessing the cemeteries during the central days of this festival to control the capacity that will be 300 people in Mazarrón and 200 in the Port." Likewise, Francisco José García has announced that "the people who come must do so provided with their buckets and tools and only the stairs will be loaned and will be disinfected once a person uses them." Other aspects to take into account is that "there will be no masses this year inside the cemeteries, but they will be celebrated in the respective parishes, and in the pantheons there may not be more than one person for every 4 square meters," he indicated.
To these rules are added the general measures of interpersonal distance, mandatory use of a mask, groups of 6 people maximum and use of hydroalcoholic gel, which will be available at the entrances to the cemetery. Tomás Ureña, Councilor for Services, explained that "pruning, cleaning and gardening arrangements are already being carried out and in the coming days we will also proceed to install flowers at various points in the cemeteries to beautify them." Also, "the cleaning and conditioning of the parking lots in Mazarrón and the Port has already been carried out and new painting works are planned to be undertaken in the coming days," the mayor has indicated. The head of Services has also announced that "we will enable portable chemical toilets to offer a better service and the toilets of the cemeteries will be disinfected several times during each day, thus facing the coronavirus, in addition to the installation of more containers," he indicated Tomás Ureña, who has asked the neighbors to "maintain order during these days and to help us deal with this situation that we all suffer as well as possible." Silvia García, head of Commerce, has urged citizens "to schedule their floral orders in advance and not leave them for the last minute, as we recommend that the arrangement of the niches and pantheons be done over different days and prior to the busiest days ".
The mayor has also announced that "he is going to see a control of the itinerant sale of flowers that occurs on those days." Silvia García has agreed with her colleagues on the importance of everyone's responsibility "since it is a very important festival for our neighbors and we call on the population to come with enough time on the central days of the festival to leave the flowers and thus allowing other people to enter ", recommending that on those days they do not spend more than 30 minutes inside the cemeteries.
