KATO TRITOS, GREECE - OCTOBER 12: Marble headstones mark the graves of muslim migrants who drowned trying to cross the Aegean sea from Turkey to the Greek island of Lesbos on October 12, 2019 in Kato Tritos, Greece. It is believed that over 39 people have lost their lives this year and thousands since the start of the migrant crisis. The small cemetery in the village of Kato Tritos was opened after the main cemetery in Mitilini became full. The influx of migrants continues forcing authorities to begin the relocation of refugees and migrates from the overcrowded Moria Camp to the mainland in a bid to ease pressure on the island camp.

As more and more parks become crowded with people looking for a little fresh air and some exercise while on coronavirus lockdown, many are looking for an alternate place to getaway. In fact, many are now turning to graveyards as a place to hang out.

A woman and her husband checked out Prospect Park, but the sight of so many other people had them worried about spreading the disease so they chose to instead, to head to a local cemetery for some fresh air.

While many cemeteries remain open, some have decided to close their gates to the living. The good news is that these places are often on vast acres of land and make it easy to keep social distancing easier while outside.
