Operation Safe and Uncrowded Carnival 2021

This year the block will enter the avenue to take care of people and preserve life.

According to researchers, the first carnival celebrations took place at the time of the arrival of the Portuguese, in the 16th century, since then they have never stopped being celebrated. However, due to the covid-19 pandemic, the postponement or cancellation of the party was discussed by the governments of the country's largest cities.

Recently, the Municipality of Tibau do Sul issued a new decree banning the “holding of public and private events such as concerts and artistic, corporate, technical, scientific, conventions or any other type of mass event”. The state government of Rio Grande do Norte published in the Official Gazette that it decided to suspend the optional point. The parties are also canceled and any clandestine celebrations will be monitored, the measure aims to prevent the spread of contagions by the new coronavirus during the extended holiday.

The forecast is for Pipa to have its occupation in the average that it has been reaching since its reopening. Many accommodations with the maximum capacity allowed, even with the cancellations of those who were prevented from traveling.

Since the beginning of the morning of this Friday, February 12th, the Tibau do Sul City Hall has started Operation Safe and Unclustered Carnival, with the objective of providing more security to tourists and safeguarding the health of residents, businessmen and workers, avoiding for COVID-19 to spread in our city.

During the entire carnival period, two preventive and informative blitzes will be set up: one in Piau and the other at the entrance to Pipa. For entry into our municipality, the protocols must be followed throughout the recommendations: It will be mandatory to wear a protective mask and everyone will have a mandatory stop at Blitz COVID, for temperature measurement and prior analysis of health conditions.

With the prohibitions on the use of sound equipment or the execution of musical instruments on public roads (Law n.214.019 / 2020 and Municipal Decree No. 003 of January 28, 2021), the traditional street party, on Ash Wednesday, which has always enlivened the carnival for those who stayed in the city and especially for those who live and worked hard during the holidays, will be under the surveillance of city hall agents.

It is very likely that groups of friends, family or even people alone will start a type of carnival demonstration and, of course, it will become a larger proportion.
