What will the New Year be like in Salvador?
To avoid agglomerations, the city hall of the Bahian capital had announced two shows that would be broadcast online, with Ivete Sangalo and Gusttavo Lima, for December 31. However, the action, dubbed "live of the turn", was canceled last week.
According to information from the prefecture, the measure was taken to reinforce the message to the population that the moment is of care. With the increase in the number of cases in recent days, Salvador wants to emphasize that the city is taking the moment seriously and that it is necessary to redouble attention.
Among the actions determined to avoid agglomerations in the New Year in Salvador, it was defined, for example, the interdiction of Orla da Barra, to avoid crowds in the place. The traditional fireworks display will be maintained, but the city hall did not disclose the points where the show will take place, another action to avoid agglomerations.

But, after all, what's the best way to celebrate the turn of the year 2020/21? The recommendation of the WHO (World Health Organization) is that families and friends do not meet to celebrate.
This is especially true for families and friends who do not live in the same house. For those who live together, fraternization can normally take place inside their homes.
