Just as with carnival in Tenerife, Los Indianos in Santa Cruz de La Palma cannot take place this year in its usual format and no street carnival will be held, because of the COVID pandemic. The event, which takes place on Carnival Monday, the day before Shrove Tuesday, therefore, should have taken place today, Monday, 15 February 2021. 

Santa Cruz de La Palma City Council has said they will organize an edition of the carnival adapted to the current pandemic, to maintain the celebration, albeit in a different way, with workshops, exhibitions, costume contests through the City Council's social networks, as well as talks and performances. Any face-to-face activities, will be limited capacity. Work is already underway on the 2022 carnival, hoped to be held in a normal manner.
