By Aaron Humes: Within the latest COVID-19 public health safety regulations contained in Statutory Instrument No. 92 of 2021 is the elimination of wakes and repasts and limitations on funeral services.

A wake is a ceremonial tradition of remembrance of the deceased held before the funeral service; a repast is normally held directly after the funeral service. Both are occasions for large gatherings of family, friends, and acquaintances.

Funerals can now only be held at a cemetery and the ceremony shall be for no more than one hour.

Recently there has been the elimination of wakes and repasts by family for safety and other reasons, but at least until the COVID scourge is over it will now be illegal to hold one.

The SI was signed on August 20 and came into effect today, Monday, August 23.
