COVID-19 Guidance

COVID-19 remains a part of our lives, and this is likely to be the case in September 2022.

For this reason, we have introduced guidance to make Wild North 2022 as safe and enjoyable as possible.

This guidance will be updated as and when circumstances change.


COVID-19 symptoms

Do not travel to the event if you have COVID-19 symptoms, even if they are mild. Get a PCR test, self-isolate until you get your test result, and follow government and health service rules. Please also contact us as soon as possible.

What do I need to bring?

  • Proof of vaccination 
  • Proof of a negative COVID test.

No proof - no admittance.


Vaccination

Attendees must have completed a full course of vaccination (unless medically exempt). This means at least two doses of AstraZeneca, Moderna or Pfizer, or at least one dose of Janssen, 14 days or more before your first day at the event. 

If you have a medical exemption, please let the organisers know.

Your vaccination status will be checked at registration. There is no need to contact the organisers beforehand. We cannot accept handwritten vaccination records.


If you are fully vaccinated: You must show proof of vaccination via an official government means.

I

If you are not fully vaccinated: People who have not completed a full course of vaccination, or do not have a medical exemption, will not be permitted on the Wild North premises, nor to take part in the event. Do not travel to the event if this is the case.


COVID Test

To make our event as safe as possible, we are also requiring all attendees to take a COVID Test (lateral flow or PCR). We recommend testing the day before you travel, in order to avoid disappointment.

You can take your test either on the day you arrive, or the day before. For example, if you are arriving on 23 September, you will need to take your test on 22 or 23 September.

Report your test result to your government or health service. For example, lateral flow tests are reported on the UK Government website. PCR tests can be reported on the NHS App.

At registration, you must show official confirmation of a negative test result. For example, you can use the NHS app (or equivalent), or show a confirmation message from the UK Government reporting service.

We cannot accept photographs of test strips - these are not proof you have tested negative that day or the day before.

You must take your test before travelling to the event. We will not be offering tests on-site. 

If you forget, you can collect a COVID test at a pharmacy. The nearest pharmacy is:

Boots plc, Westgate, Haltwhistle, NE49 9AF


Complete your test and report the result before travelling to the event.


If you test positive - do not travel to the event. Self-isolate, and follow government and health service rules. Please also contact us as soon as possible.


If you have a positive PCR test, in the 90 days before you arrive - Please contact the Organisers.


Face coverings

We will inform you in good time when and where face coverings will be required. We will be informed by UK Government guidance on face coverings at the time of the event. 


Government guidance

We will follow all UK Government guidance at the time of the event.
