Information on COVID 19

Update of Saturday, May 14 2022 (next update on Saturday Mai 28, 2022)

Statistics and news:

Brazil is the second country after the United States to have suffered the most in absolute terms from Covid 19 with 30,66 million people infected and 664,830 dead on May 13 2022. On average day over the last week, the number of infected is 17,537 (+21 over the last 14 days) and deaths of 98 (-23%) with 26.321 infected and 130 deaths in the last 24 hours.

The moving average of daily deaths has been below the 200 level since January 18, 2022 but has been rising for 16 days. It is again oriented downwards for 5 days. On the other hand, the moving average of new infections has been rising for a week after a downward trend for 89 consecutive days.

On May 13 177,7084,742 people (82.79% of the Total Population and 88.79% of the Vaccinable Population) received at least a first vaccination, 165,1359,241 (76.87% TP and 82.5% VP) at least a second and 89,426,499 (41.63% TP and 55.28% VP) a reinforcement dose. A total of 432,270,482 doses were applied to the population.

In Rio, the obligation to wear a mask indoors was canceled on March 8 and since April 26, the obligation to present the health pass in closed public places has also been canceled. There is therefore no longer any constraint linked to the Covid in the city of Rio de Janeiro.

Since we have created this special Covid page in June 2020, we can safely write that Brazil presents the sanitary conditions allowing the return of travelers.

Covid-related measures for traveling to Brazil:

Since April 1st, travelers aged 12 and over can enter Brazil (children under 12 are exempt) :

  • Who present to the airline company before boarding, the vaccination certificate with complete cycle provided that the last dose was injected at least 14 days before the flight.
  • or a negative PCR or antigen test result within 24 hours for travelers exempt from vaccination passe for medical reasons. It is therefore no longer mandatory to present a test when you have your vaccination certificate.


The Conscious Tourism’s Charter

The city of Rio de Janeiro with the Brazilian Ministry of Tourism launched in June 2020 a certification program for travel agencies and guides that respect a protocol related to COVID 19 to ensure the health safety of tourists in Brazil.

Good Guide In Rio joined this program and received the “TURISMO CONSCIENTE” certification on June 28 which commits to respecting the following rules:

  • Use of masks by our guides and drivers when they are in contact with our customers, the latter being encouraged to wear them without obligatory nature except in closed environments (cars and vans, closed rooms, elevators etc …). Customers must have their own face mask.
  • Respect for barrier gestures.
  • Respect for social distancing, as far as possible, during guided tours.
  • Commitment to use hydro-alcoholic gel to clean hands and make gel available to customers.
  • Complete sanitation of vehicles before each visit.
  • Health vigilance for guides and drivers with regular PCR tests. Those with symptoms like fever or cough will be quarantined. The guide reserves the right to exclude any visitor showing these symptoms and invite them to return to their hotel in order to protect the group from a risk of possible contamination.
  • Communicate good health practices to customers and monitor compliance with these practices during visits to places that have specifically set up a health protocol (Christ the Redeemer, Sugar Loaf, Museums, Churches, etc.)
