Carnival groups will be able to return to rehearsals at the beginning of November

The two city councils of the capitals and the Government of the Canary Islands are working together towards the return of programming of activities at Christmas and Carnival

The mayor of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Jose Manuel Bermúdez, held a meeting this Thursday with the Minister of Health of the Government of the Canary Islands, Blas Trujillo, and the councillors of Fiestas of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Inmaculada Medina and Alfonso Cabello, respectively, to analyse the current health situation on the islands and plan a common strategy for the organization of Christmas and Carnival with all health and legal guarantees. The meeting was also attended by the general director of Public Health of the Government of the Canary Islands.

Both municipal institutions and the Ministry of Health have agreed to form, as of next Wednesday, October 13, a work table to begin making common decisions, in which the return to the rehearsal premises at the beginning of November for the Carnival groups, is the first resolution to be taken. "If the groups cannot rehearse from now on, it is practically impossible for them to have enough time to carry out their rehearsals in time for the contests and galas, to which we should add the rest of the unions that depend on these dates, such as the textile sector, for example”, warned Bermúdez.

"As of today, what we have already prepared is a contagion prevention plan for the return to the rehearsal premises and also a list of recommendations for returning to the premises, which guarantee the health safety of all groups," said Cabello .

For the Minister of Health of the Government of the Canary Islands, Blas Trujillo, the current situation of the pandemic in the Canary Islands "with very positive data, due to the high level of vaccination and compliance with health protocols, indicates that in the coming months the situation of the pandemic allows us work on a gradual return to the organization of these important festivals for the Canary Islands”.

Finally, it should be noted that another of the points that were discussed was the complexity of organizing a Carnival in the street without enough time, so both parties were summoned to the next meetings to make decisions on the matter.
