The city of Liverpool will play a major role in assisting the countries nightlife sectors’ restart this summer. On the weekend, it was announced that a number of events on Merseyside - including a club night - will be piloted early as part of a government review into reopening events across the country as lockdown is eased.
According to reports from the Telegraph, the scheme will start on the 12th of April and partygoers will be allowed to attend a one-off event, months ahead of the official earliest date for restriction lifting, on the 21st of June.
The trial will require attendees and venue owners to test elements including; face-covering use, ventilation and site layout. In order to attend, negative tests will be required on entry and after the events have finished, the government keen to ensure any potential transmission is tracked. Events will also take into account those spectators that have had the vaccine for research purposes.
Oliver Dowden, the UK’s culture secretary said, “These test events will be crucial in finding ways to get fans and audiences back in safely without social distancing.
“We will be guided by the science and medical experts but will work flat out to make that happen. We want to get the people back to enjoying what they love and ensure some of our most important growth industries get back on their feet. These are important steps towards the safe and special summer we all crave and that I’m fully focused on delivering.”
Providing that the data-driven roadmap goes to plan all restrictions on social interaction will be lifted from the 21st of June, allowing clubs, concerts, festivals any other restricted business to re-open for trade.
