The Government is encouraging attendees at festivals this weekend to take an LFD test when you get home from the event. While the precautions you and The Big Feastival are taking will help limit transmission, there is still a chance some people could bring the virus to the event. Taking an LFD when you get home, and continuing to test with an LFD twice a week, will help identify cases early and stop onward transmission.
Please see guidance on testing at https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/testing/get-tested-for-coronavirus/
You are advised to take a test after the event, even if you are fully vaccinated. Around 1 in 3 people who have COVID-19 do not have any symptoms but they can still pass it on and put others at risk.
If you do not have COVID-19 symptoms, you can collect a free LFD test kit from a local pharmacy or order a free home LFD test kit at www.gov.uk/order-coronavirus-rapid-lateral-flow-tests
If you do have COVID-19 symptoms, please stay at home and book a PCR test at www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test
