However, performances can be canceled if there is a worsening of the pandemic in the city.
The São Paulo City Hall approved the sanitary protocols for the samba school parades: the presentation of the vaccine passport and the use of masks are two of the main measures for Carnival in the Anhembi sambadrome.
The decision comes days after Mayor Ricardo Nunes canceled this year’s street Carnival, due to the advancement of the ômicron variant.
The masks will even be mandatory even for those who are going to parade, according to the document, which caused the Harmony question to be excluded from the trial. In addition, there will also be a reduction in the number of components per samba school and public control in concentration and dispersion.
The protocol also provides that, in case of aggravation of the epidemiological situation in the capital, the parade may be cancelled.
