Big Concerts and The Entertainment Group has partnered with Health Passport Europe in a bid to safely reopen the local events industry. The Irish company uses reliable rapid COVID-19 testing at event venues to determine if guests may enter a festival or show. Results of the tests are privately and securely sent to a guest’s phone via the Health Passport App. This app needs to be scanned upon entry at a venue. If a person has tested positive for COVID-19, they are denied entry. The system was successfully tested in December 2020 at an event at the V & A Waterfront. Health Passport is already being used in countries like Portugal and Italy.
