Premier League Matches Are Among The Events That Could Only Be Allowed To Properly Vaccinated Spectators If Government Proposals Are Implemented

According to government proposals, large events such as Premier League games could be restricted to fully vaccinated people starting in October.
According to the PA news agency, talks are on with the Premier League to see if fans who have not received both shots would be denied entry.
The restriction might also be applied to lower divisions and other sports, as well as seated events with more than 20,000 people in attendance.
The attendance barrier for unseated events, like as concerts, might be as low as 5,000 people.
“It’s crucial that fans can continue to watch athletic events over the autumn,” a government source said. “That’s why we’re looking into the role vaccines might play in this.”
“Not only will this allow full capacity stadiums, but it will also incentivize individuals of all ages to go and get their jab.” It’s unclear whether a recent negative test will allow access to football matches, but nightclubs have been ruled out.
“To insist for vaccine passports less than a month before the start of the season will cause huge delays, especially for clubs at the lowest end of the league,” said shadow sports secretary Jo Stevens.
“Labour has made it plain that relying solely on COVID vaccination status will exclude people who are unable to get vaccinated or who have not received the vaccine due to delays.”
“Getting double-jabbed doesn’t mean you’re not infected.”
“Testing for access to stadiums would be more efficient.” Image: The English Football League declined to comment, although it is known that contingency preparations are being planned in the event of a change in government policy.
Sir Patrick Vallance, the government’s senior scientific adviser, has previously stated that nightclubs might be “super-spreading events,” although it is unclear whether similar concerns exist for football matches.
Nonetheless, there were concerns about fans visiting London during Euro 2020, with Public Health Scotland records showing over 1,300 coronavirus infections related to fans visiting the capital for group stage matches.
Those in frontline roles like as police, fire, and the Border Force would be able to avoid quarantine if they are a close contact of a positive COVID case, regardless of immunization status, it was revealed on Saturday.
It’s part of the government’s effort to address the current situation, in which certain industries are severely understaffed as a result of workers being advised to self-isolate after coming into touch with someone who has COVID.
In the week leading up to July 14, the NHS COVID-19 app advised almost 600,000 people in England and Wales to quarantine.
Workers in emergency services and other important industries, such as transportation, freight, and haulage, were previously excluded from isolation – but only if their employers specified their identities and double-jabbed them.
Because new testing sites will be built, people will be allowed to participate in the scheme whether or not they have been vaccinated.
On Saturday, the number of new COVID-19 cases in the United Kingdom declined for the fourth day in a row.
There were 31,795 new cases, compared to 36,389 cases on Friday and 54,674 infections the previous week on the same day.
