由于Covid-19, 狂欢节游行将于明年在新奥尔良取消

狂欢节 parades will not be permitted next year at New Orleansannual festival, 但是市政府官员说假期绝对不会取消.

“我想很清楚. 狂欢节 2021 没有取消. It is going to look different. The mayor has been very consistent about saying that at every stage,” said Beau Tidwell, communications director for Mayor LaToya Cantrell, during a Tuesday press conference.
狂欢节, to be celebrated on February 16, 2021, is a religious holiday, and therefore cannot be canceled, 根据 to the city’s website.
然而, as Covid-19 cases continue to rise in the city with the number of new cases approaching critical levels, the city is imposing some restrictionsnotably, canceling parades in an effort to prevent a super spreader event.
    There’s no way that that’s responsible given what we know about the pandemic right now,” Tidwell said.
    So while we certainly want to move forward and find ways that we can celebrate, and we can mark this occasion, we have to do it safely. We have … 10 more deaths in the last two weeks. The positivity rate doubled in the last week.
    Though the city will still allow visitorswith both Bourbon Street and Frenchmen Street remaining openthe city still requires everyone to wear masks in public and maintain social distancing. “It is highly recommended that time in the city’s entertainment districts be limited and social distancing observed with mask wearing,” the mayor’s website states.
      The mayor’s office is also taking suggestions from residents on how to hold the carnival in a safe way.
      The news comes as Covid-19 cases continue to surge across the country, 与 record numbers of hospitalizations and daily cases. Many states are issuing a new wave of mask mandates and other restrictions in an attempt to fend off the virus, with some places discouraging holiday festivities as well.
