For another year, Cearenses will not be able to enjoy the traditional “Festa da Virada”, at the Praia de Iracema landfill, in Fortaleza, because of the Covid-19 pandemic. The decision was confirmed and announced by the Governor of the Ceará, Camilo Santana, this Friday (26). The ban extends to any major event of Christmas Eve across the state.
With this, the parties follow the planning already provided for in previous state decrees that, as of December 16, allow 2.5 thousand people in closed environments and 5 thousand in open environments, with access control and requirement of the vaccination passport.
“We took this initiative out of absolute prudence, responsibility and respect, as a priority, to the lives of our brothers from Ceará. I will not rest until we vaccinate the entire population of Ceará”, said the governor during a live broadcast on social networks.
Another decision is that establishments that still maintain capacity restrictions – such as gyms, cinemas and theaters – will be able to expand the capacity in its entirety, as long as they start to require a vaccination passport. The change is at the discretion of the enterprise.
Over the Carnival, the governor has the same opinion and stated that they should follow the same line of thought. However, this issue will only be discussed in the future.
