COVID REQUIREMENTS

STORM @ CAMBER SANDS

11-13 MAR 2022

This is specifically for our STORM 2022 event at Camber Sands
Details for other events will be published on their own event pages and based on information and guidance available at the time.

The information on this page is based on our BLISS event that was in November 2021. This is likely to be the same plan for STORM 2022.

Ceroc promises to keep the COVID protocols under review to ensure they are reasonable and proportionate to what is appropriate at the time based on information from the NHS and the Government.

Therefore the specific requirements for STORM 2022 will be known closer to the event.

NEED TO KNOW & SHARE

1) Everyone will show photo ID on arrival.

2) Everyone will show either LFT report or certain PCR results if applicable.

3) Everyone needs to know the permitted arrival times.

This will help us register and provide your wristband as quickly as possible so you can enjoy your dancing!

Please share this information with everyone in your group.

OPTION TWO

 

ARRIVING AT THE EVENT – 90 DAY PCR TEST ALTERNATIVE

  1. Show photo ID together with proof of a POSITIVE PCR result dated on or after 10 December 2021 by showing the email or text message sent to you notifying you of the result.
  2. You must also be feeling well and be allowed to have stopped self-isolating. For more information, see the NHS information: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/self-isolation-and-treatment/how-long-to-self-isolate/

 

INFORMATION

OPTION TWO is an alternative to OPTION ONE for a small number of people who tested positive for COVID-19 in the 90 days before the event. OPTION TWO is only because re-tests within 90 days of an infection might show a false positive.

If your POSITIVE PCR result is dated 09 December 2021 or before then you must use OPTION ONE to enter this event.

Photo ID and a POSITIVE PCR result dated between 10 December 2021 and 28 February 2022 (inclusive) is acceptable for OPTION TWO provided you no longer have to self-isolate.

Any POSITIVE PCR results dated on or after 01 March 2022 will be acceptable for OPTION TWO if you are also showing proof from the NHS that your self-isolation date finishes before attending. You must be eligible to stop self-isolating because you have completed the 10 days and you no longer have applicable symptoms as per the NHS information about when to stop self-isolating: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/self-isolation-and-treatment/how-long-to-self-isolate/

Further information to answer frequently asked questions

Rapid self-test ‘Lateral Flow Testing’ (LFT) is currently free from the NHS whilst the NHS is advising everyone without symptoms to regularly test twice a week (every 3 to 4 days) and to also test before/after being present in certain settings.

There are four kits available from the NHS. The original involves a sample from the throat and nose. It takes a few minutes to prepare and then 30 minutes for the result to process. Pharmacies are most likely to be giving out this type of kit but might also begin to have the new kits.

Three new kits are now nose only. They also take a few minutes to prepare and then a waiting time of 15 minutes for the result. These are very likely to be supplied when ordering online to be posted to you.

For all rapid tests, the control line should appear very quickly. See the instructions with your specific test kit for the waiting time but this is between 15 and 30 minutes depending on the kit.

Therefore it generally takes at least 20 minutes per person to conduct the test and get a result.

As per the instructions, the results are void after 20-30 minutes (depending on the kit). This is one reason why you need to report the result, dispose of the device and not bring the device to the actual event.

 

COMING FROM OUTSIDE THE UK

You can still report the result even if not registered with the NHS. You can most likely make arrangements to get the kits from someone before the event and doing this like everyone else will give you the best experience.
