Haven’t read any of the forum, barely enough signal +battery to post this, but for the avoidance of doubt, this isn’t a free for all jolly, it’s a closely controlled experiment with lots of hoops to jump through to be part of it.
I thought really carefully before committing. I’ve had 2 jabs, I've been using public transport (cautiously) since March and I mix with lots of people at work, but under strict social distancing/mask/2x neg. test a week circs. For me, it being outside was the main reason I came. Additionally I can choose the distance from and time I’m close to someone. On balance it feels less risky than being on a London commuter train for 2 hrs a day.
To be allowed into Download we had to test neg on the morning and do an additional PCR test.(had neg result from that)
Anecdotally, when the crowd were asked who had had 2 jabs, the majority had, which tbh surprised me. There is a much younger crowd here than usual, maybe because it was only announced 3 weeks ago and it’s easier for younger people to be here Fri to Mon.
I’ll do another lat flow test on Monday when I get home, and we have to do another PCR 5 days after. there are a number of other restrictions too, eg you can’t leave the festival site and return, you had to declare who you are travelling to and from the festival with and how , etc etc. Don”t know how it’s being portrayed in the media but its a tightly controlled event. It just also happens to be effing brilliant too.
Anyway, i sincerely hope your wedding goes well, we all deserve some happiness and joy, I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you.
