The following article, Longrunning Music Festival to Require Vaccines and COVID Tests This Summer, was first published on Flag And Cross.
Whether or not the medical experts or the liberal left are ready to admit it, the fact of the matter is this: Only about half of this nation is going to willingly receive a COVID-19 vaccination at this time.
They have their reasons for abstaining. Some are simply waiting for the FDA to fully authorize the inoculation, as opposed to releasing it with “emergency use authorization”, as is the case currently.
Others are very cognizant of their bodily sovereignty, and they believe that refusing to partake at this time helps to keep a potentially overzealous government from getting any ideas.
And, of course, there are those whose ideas are a little wilder, who tell tales of implanted microchips and the mark of the beast.
Seeing as the government hasn’t yet had the stomach for mandating the vaccines themselves, there are a number of private companies who are taking matters into their own hands. This includes one of the most popular music festivals in the United States.
The hordes of people expected to descend on Chicago’s Grant Park for the Lollapalooza music festival this week will be required to show proof that they’ve been vaccinated for COVID-19 or tested negative for the disease within the last three days.
The four-day festival starts Thursday and is expected to be back at full capacity, with roughly 100,000 daily attendees. After missing last summer because of the threat of the coronavirus, it will easily be Chicago’s largest gathering since the pandemic started, and one of the country’s.
The setup will be strict.
This year’s festival will look very different than in the past. To gain entry, attendees will have to present their vaccination cards or a printed copy of a negative COVID-19 test that is no more than 72 hours old. That means that anyone with a four-day pass who isn’t vaccinated will have to get tested twice. Furthermore, anyone who isn’t vaccinated will have to wear a mask.
The decision arrives as government officials around the country continue to urge caution in the face of the surging “delta” variant of COVID-19, and just ahead of an announcement by the Biden administration that will all but require government employees to be inoculated.
