COVID – 19 INFORMATION Coronavirus is still with us, please take some simple precautions to keep yourself and others safe at the Celebrate Halton Music Weekender.

  • Get a test: take a rapid symptom free test using Lateral Flow Tests (LFT) within 24hrs of the event – even if you have had both doses of the Covid-19 vaccination. If the result is positive follow up with a PCR test.
  • Do not attend: if you have tested positive for coronavirus within the 10 days before the event or if you have been in contact with a confirmed case of coronavirus within the last 10 days.
  • Stay at home: and book a PCR test if you have any of the main symptoms of COVID-19 such as a high temperature, a new continuous cough or loss or change to sense of smell
  • Be aware of other associated symptoms: if you’re feeling generally unwell with a headache, a stuffed or runny nose, tiredness or weakness, aches and pains, sore throat or diarrhoea, take an LFT and follow up with a PCR test if the LFT test is positive.
  • Consider wearing a face covering: if you are travelling to the event on public transport, especially if it is crowded.
  • Be kind and considerate: some people may feel a bit more nervous about being back in a crowded situation after so long, so please be respectful if someone chooses to wear a face covering, or prefers to keep a distance”
