In the face of the pandemic, the Doce Edition monitoring team informed the bidders about the necessary guidelines for the evaluation of the conditions for carrying out the activities, considering the Covid-19 health and safety protocols. Each bidder had the autonomy to evaluate and indicate the start date of their activities. Based on the information provided, conditions were assessed according to risk criteria, and adjustments were indicated for the projects to begin their activities.
