Music festival season is revving up and one of the most popular festivals, Coachella, is reportedly gearing up for a full festival experience and will not require festival goers to have a negative COVID-19 test, nor will masks be required.
News of the festival’s updated COVID-19 policy was first reported by CBS News. The new guidelines state:
“In accordance with local guidelines, there will be no vaccination, testing or masking requirements at Coachella 2022,” the guidelines read. “However, the event shall be presented in accordance with applicable public health conditions as of the date of the event and which may change at any time as determined by federal, state or local government agencies or instrumentalities, artists or the promoter; such requirements may include, without limitation, changes to capacity, attendance procedures and entry requirements, such as proof of vaccination and/or negative COVID-19 test, and other protective measures such as requiring attendees to wear face coverings.”
For those interested in attending the potential superspreader event, the headliners for the weekend include Harry Styles, Billie Eilish, Kanye West, and Swedish House Mafia.
