The plan was developed in partnership with Albert Einstein and Sírio-Libanês hospitals, with the aim of preventing the spread of the new coronavirus.

According to the plan, the use of a protective mask during sessions is mandatory, as well as the availability of alcohol gel.

Polling stations will not have a temperature measurement to avoid crowds. The document also recommends that voters bring their own pens to sign the ballot paper, reducing the chance of contamination.

Polling stations will have an additional hour of operation. Schools will open at 7am and not 8am, and will close at 5pm. The biometrics system will not be available to avoid queues.

The polling officials were instructed not to use gloves and gel alcohol will be made available for constant hand hygiene. For those who are instructed not to appear on the day of the vote, the justification for the vote can be made through the application of the TCE (State Audit Court).
