Can you get sick from going to a cemetery?

As we all know that a cemetery or graveyard is a burial place where dead people are laid to rest. But I wonder if we can get sick from going to a cemetery.

    No you can not get sick from going to a cemetery. What do you think is going to make you sick?   Bodies are in a casket and six feet underground. Most will be skeletons

    No.  Of course not.

    I think it's highly unlikely.  People are buried six feet deep, and it's unlikely that germs will travel across six feet of ground will get to you.  Also, the keepers of the cemetery keep the graves clean and trimmed, I think.  It's all quite sanitary.  

    Now, if you're thinking of going to a closed cemetary after hours for Halloween, you run the same risk of exposure as if you were in a park or a forest after dark.  It will be dark and probably damp.
