Los Cristianos Carnival 2020 Suspended

Massive Events Suspended in The Canary Islands

The evolution of the Covid-19 coronavirus epidemic has led the Arona City Council to decree today the suspension of the events of the International Carnival of Los Cristianos, which was scheduled to start tomorrow and extend until the 23 March with the participation of thousands of people, both residents and visitors.

This decision is part of the battery of measures adopted by the different public administrations; Governments of the State and the Canary Islands, as well as the Executive Committee of the Canary Islands, which also includes the municipalities and which met this morning to try to contain the epidemic throughout the national territory, trying to ensure the maximum safety of the population.

Both the mayor and councilor have stressed that "while it is true that suspending Carnival is paralyzing an important activity for the municipality, the safety of our residents and visitors has been and will be the priority for the government of Arona at all times," he added.
