Celebrate the Carnival at home! Bosnian Mayor Jack Mikkers made this call on Friday on Twitter. “Take your responsibility,” says Mikkers. “Consider the risks of the coronavirus and the measures we are aware of. Celebrate at home in your own household. Observe curfew and hygiene measures. And don’t get more than one person a day. “
Alcohol is prohibited in the center of the Brabant capital. This also applies during the carnival in the village centers of Empel, Nuland, Rosmalen and Vinkel. “Entrepreneurs are allowed to sell alcohol, but only open and use it at home,” says Mikkers.
The Oeteldonksche Club and the Den Bosch department of Koninklijke Horeca Nederland also urge people to celebrate at home and not come into the city center because there is nothing to do.
Mikkers sees opportunities to make some fun of it online. “Ask your carnival association about it. The local broadcaster DTV Den Bosch broadcasts something about carnival every day. “
