Qingming 2020 Event Cancelled | 清明节活动取消

English

中文

Rookwood General Cemetery understands the significance of the Qingming Festival to our Chinese community. Due to the COVID-19 crisis, we request that visitors to Rookwood during this memorial period should follow the restrictions put in place by the NSW Government.

From 31 March, 2020, the community must stay at home unless for essential activities, such as work, medical care, collection of essentials, and exercise. It is important that the community does not gather in public with more than 2 people except for members of the same household.

To safeguard Rookwood’s visitors; and as our employees are now working to strict rosters to ensure we can continue to deliver cemetery services, we must request the following restrictions during the Qingming Festival.

  • No animals of any kind
  • No fires or burning drums
  • No food or cooking facilities
  • No coloured paper or envelopes

The COVID-19 virus may be transmitted by many of the abovementioned items, which are often left around the cemetery following the festival.

We welcome flowers and incense in small receptacles.

Security guards and police will be onsite to provide guidance.

We thank you for your cooperation during this difficult time.

罗克伍德墓园理解清明节对我们华人社区的重要意义。

但由于新冠病毒的疫情(COVID-19),我们要求在此期间访问罗克伍德墓园的所有人都须遵守新南威尔士州政府的新法规。

新法规规定从2020年3月31日起,除非从事生活必要活动, 社区人群必须待在家里。 必要活动包括:外出工作,出门就诊,外出购买生活必需品和锻炼身体。

另外,还需特别注意, 除同一家庭的成员以外, 社区中的社交聚会人数不得超过2人

为了保护罗克伍德墓园访客的安全: 我们的员工已实行更严格的换班制度. 在清明节期间, 为确保墓园可以继续为您提供公墓服务,新增以下限制条款:

  • 严禁任何动物入墓园
  • 严禁在墓园内使用明火和烧纸盆
  • 严禁携带食物和任何烹饪设备
  • 严禁在墓园内使用彩色/有色纸张和信封

敬请注意,在节日期间,常有上文提及的严禁物品遗留在墓园周围,新冠病毒(COVID-19)很有可能借由上述遗留物品被传播。

我们当然还是欢迎您在小花瓶里放鲜花和熏香。

保安人员和警察将在现场提供帮助和指导。

我们感谢您在这一特殊的困难时期给予的配合
