In a news post in November 2021, we reported that the Mindelo Carnival would be taking place in 2022. Sadly, because of the Omicron variant all carnival celebrations are cancelled this year. The Cape Verde Government made this announcement. The desire to reduce the risk of covid spreading and the need for tourism to increase again have led to this decision. The covid situation in Cape Verde is very much better than it was. It is better than many other countries, but this is a wise decision.
