Coachella Drops Covid Precautions
Back in February, it had also emerged that both Coachella and Stagecoach festivals had agreed to drop all Covid-19 protocols ahead of their returns this year.
Such protocols also include requiring a negative Covid test 72 hours in advance of attending. Fans will also no longer need to wear masks at these events.
However, both websites have stated that this new policy is “in accordance with local guidelines”. Adding that Covid-19 “is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death”.
They also added, “There is an inherent and elevated risk of exposure to COVID-19 in any public place or place where people are present. There is no guarantee, express or implied, that those attending the festival will not be exposed to COVID-19.”
“As we prepare to spend an incredible weekend in the desert together. We are announcing that there will be no vaccination, testing or masking requirements at Stagecoach 2022, in accordance with local guidelines. Visit http://stagecoachfestival.com for more info”.
They have also added that rules can change at any times, subject to a change in Covid-19 cases in America. More on this from Nova here.
