No masks and no social distancing will be required at this year’s Brit Awards. This was announced by the show’s organisers.
While the pandemic is still very much a threat, the British government has decided to use this year’s awards show as an experiment. Even though the 4,000 attendees won’t have to wear masks or practice social distancing, they have to consent to form part of this research experiment, and they have to show a negative COVID test result before they will be allowed to go to the event.
The first live music show in more than a year will be held at London’s O2 Arena.
The event organisers will set out more rules that the attendees have to follow, especially surrounding travel arrangements, when travelling to and from the event.
In the event of an outbreak, attendees will also be required to provide their details to ensure they can be tracked and traced as part of the government’s effort to stop the spread of the virus after the show.
While nominees will be in attendance, some tickets will be for sale on the show’s website. Most of the tickets will be gifted to essential workers who put their lives at risk while fighting the pandemic on the front line.
