Minister of Culture and the Arts says newspaper article was wrong to imply Carnival 2021 is on

The Minister of Culture and the Arts is insisting a newspaper headline was wrong when it implied that Carnival 2021 is on.

The article in the Trinidad Guardian forced a release from the Minister, saying no decision has been taken regarding the staging of Carnival next year.

Minister Dr. Nyan Gadsby Dolly yesterday said the article and its headline sent the wrong message.

Dr. Gadsby Dolly said once the country continues on the road to successfully fighting the virus, Carnival is likely.

Last weekend, she told Newscenter 5 there was no plan to cancel Carnival.

In the release yesterday the Minister said the government has been managing successfully the COVID-19 pandemic and any decision on hosting Carnival will be made with careful consideration to the trajectory of the virus.
