UK Government plotting COVID-19 certificates to aid return of fans

The UK Government is considering using COVID-19 certificates to help get fans back to sports events, concerts, and other large gatherings in “significant numbers”.

Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden said today (Friday) the certificates, which would show if someone was vaccinated, are among several initiatives the UK is piloting to enable the mass return of fans this summer.

The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) said it will stage “around a dozen” sporting and cultural events this spring, as part of the Events Research Programme (ERP), which will inform Government decisions on stage four of its COVID-19 reopening roadmap.

The events, including football’s FA Cup final at London’s Wembley Stadium and the World Snooker Championship in Sheffield, will provide data into reopening venues in line with the roadmap out of lockdown, which aims to remove all restrictions in England by June 21.
