TikToker Claims Lollapalooza Allowed People with Positive COVID Test into the Festival
A panicked TikToker has many questioning if COVID-19 measures were implemented correctly at a music festival. Health officials were already worried that it could turn out to be a super spreader event.
A TikTok user going by the name of ɥʇɐʞ claimed she was not impressed with the Lollapalooza music festival in one of her clips. She alleged that they let individuals with positive COVID-19 tests into the venue.
The TikTok user pleaded with those who attended the event to wear their masks under all circumstances once it is finished. She expressed how angry she was about making it through 4 levels of security within 5 minutes.
The TikToker explained that security would check your vaccination card or see if you tested negative for the virus. She exclaimed:
"People were getting through because they aren't checking the test on those."
The TikTok user alleged that someone near her was boasting about getting into the festival with a positive test. She explained that no one inside was wearing a mask, combined with mosh pits and other risky activities.
Many viewers asked her why she attended a festival during a pandemic in the first place. They labeled her a hypocrite.
They were concerned that it could turn into a super-spreader event.
Some laughed about the fact that she was wearing a mask in her car while recording the video. A TikTok use karramosr humorously asked the TikToker to calm down.
"Fake COVID-19 vaccination cards are 100% a thing at Lollapalooza in Chicago. You can get it with a single-day wristband for $50."
Ja'Mal Green's opinion is that infections would now likely rise in the city of Chicago due to this event. The Civil Rights Advocate expressed that he is expecting a city shutdown on the horizon.
Even if they were carefully checking, we now know vaxxed have the same viral load & are transmitting & becoming infected. It is dangerous to continue the narrative that people are protected if vaxxed. People feel invincible & it is not the case.— PeaceLove ☮️💙🌹 (@PeaceLoveStones) August 1, 2021
Before the event, it was made known that the festival-goers would have to test negative within 72 hours or be vaccinated to gain entrance. Attendees would have to provide proof.
This evidence could be shown via a negative COVID-19 test within the stipulated timeframe or a vaccine passport. Furthermore, those who were unvaccinated, it was reported, would be required to don a mask.
However, even before the festival and with these measures, there were worries raised by public health officials. They were concerned that it could turn into a super-spreader event.
This is just a lie. I went and there is a station after that checkpoint where someone took your vaccine card/test and reviewed it.— JB (@Jay_Bones2) August 2, 2021
Beyond getting one into festivals, it turns out vaccine cards can also provide someone with free travel. Ashley Cronkhite uploaded a photo of her vaccine card and won a year of complimentary flights.
This woman from Bradenton, Florida, was one of the five winners of a competition held by United Airlines. Any one of the airline's loyalty members could enter.
To do so, they had to upload a picture of themselves to the United App. Hopefully, with all these incentives, everyone worldwide will eventually be able to travel and attend festivals risk-free.
