HOW TO UPLOAD YOUR NHS LATERAL FLOW TEST AND WHERE TO GET ONE

If you are demonstrating your COVID-19 Status using an NHS Lateral Flow Test this should be taken prior to travel on the day of arrival at the festival, your test will then remain valid for 72 hours.

You can order NHS Lateral Flow Tests here https://www.gov.uk/order-coronavirus-rapid-lateral-flow-tests or pick them up from any pharmacy or test site.

Once you have taken your test, you will need to report your result on the NHS website here https://www.gov.uk/report-covid19-result . You will receive a text or email notification confirming your negative test result, to present on entry.

A positive result from an NHS Lateral Flow Test means it’s likely you had coronavirus when the test was done. You and anyone you live with must not attend the festival and self-isolate immediately. You are then advised to get a PCR test to confirm your result as soon as possible.

WILL I BE REQUIRED TO RE-TEST?

If you are using an NHS Lateral Flow Test to demonstrate your COVID Status, this will remain valid for 72 hours from the time you took the test. You will then need to re-test on the expiry of the initial 72 hour period so please bring a supply of Lateral flow tests with you to the festival.

If you leave the site during the festival on Friday, Saturday and/or Sunday, when you re-enter the festival you will be required to demonstrate your valid COVID Status. Please ensure that you upload your re-test to the NHS website.

How do I get a Covid Pass?

You can view your covid pass on the NHS App (please note this is different from the NHS Covid-19 App). Once downloaded you can view your Covid Pass status and this will confirm your test results or vaccination. You can also receive an offline copy by email or print off a copy and bring with you.

WHAT IF MY ACCOMMODATION IS OFF SITE?

That’s not a problem. Just show your vaccination status at the gate each day or take a lateral flow test every 72 hours.
