With COVID-19 cases on the rise throughout the state of Florida, the organizers of Miami Carnival have announced a slew of COVID-19 safety protocols for its 2021 staging.
In a statement, the Miami Broward Carnival Host Committee says it is working with Miami-Dade County doctors and staying up to date with the CDC protocols and guidelines and required reduction in the number of attendees for this year’s Miami Carnival. This year’s 37th staging will be held on Columbus Day weekend, October 2-10, 2021.
Among the new COVID-19 protocols that will be implemented are:
-All Masqueraders and attendees will be required to wear a mask and keep it on while they are at all events produced by the Miami Broward One Carnival Host Committee.
-Everyone who plans to attend any of the events must provide a negative PCR Test or proof of their Covid Vaccine.
-All masqueraders and attendees will go through a temperature screening checkpoint at all events. Additionally, each person entering the events without a personal-sized hand sanitizer will be given a small hand sanitizer bottle.
-Handwashing stations and hand sanitizer areas will be positioned throughout the entire venue at all events.
The committee says it is also encouraging all revelers to get their COVID-19 vaccine, mask up and stay home if they are not feeling well.
