Catholic Cemeteries of Guam, Inc. announces that a staff member has tested positive for COVID-19, and accordingly, its administrator has made the decision to suspend all operations at Pigo Catholic Cemetery in Anigua temporarily, until such time that all remaining staff are cleared via testing.

Without staff in place, the cemetery cannot safely continue operations. The cemetery, including the mausoleum, is closed until such time that staffers are able to return to the office and grounds to ensure visitors follow proper COVID-19 distancing protocols including sanitizing areas after each visit.

Pigo Catholic Cemetery regularly has its facilities deep cleaned and sanitized and is continuing that process.

These measures are being taken to ensure the safety of families and individuals visiting loved ones buried at Pigo and are only temporary.

The cemetery’s office is tentatively scheduled to reopen on Wednesday, 23, SEPT at 7 a.m.
