Authorities are contacting 600 people who attended the Taylor Swift album celebration event as soon as possible to have them tested for Covid.
After almost 100 participants tested positive for COVID-19 at a Taylor Swift fan gathering in Sydney to commemorate the singer’s recent release of ‘Red (Taylor’s Version),’ the event evolved into a COVID-19 superspreader.
Fans who attended the ‘On Repeat: Taylor Swift Red Party’ on December 10 in Sydney to celebrate the singer’s ‘Red (Taylor’s Version)’ are reportedly being encouraged to “immediately get tested” and isolate for seven days after “at least 97 positive cases” were confirmed, according to Fox News.
According to rumours, the pop artist did not attend the event.
Following the celebration of Taylor Swift’s rerelease of “Red,” the New South Wales Health Department has designated the Metro Theatre in Sydney as a “new location of concern.”
“NSW Health is urging all household connections of close contacts to get tested and self-isolate until everyone in the household has a negative result,” according to a public health advisory issued by NSW, as reported by Fox News.
“NSW Health is urgently contacting 600 persons who attended Metro Theatre at this time and checked in using the QR code and is directing them and members of their households to get tested and follow public health advice,” according to the statement.
“NSW Health is urging anyone who attended but did not check in using the QR code to get tested and isolated immediately,” the advisory continues, “and for the community to ensure other potential attendees are aware of this advice.”
“As the transmission of COVID occurs at social occasions during the festive season,” the statement ends, “NSW Health is reminding everyone of the significance of maintaining COVID-safe practises.”
People have also been warned about the sanctions for those who “fail to comply with the isolation, testing, and quarantine procedures,” according to the authorities.
Individual fines have reportedly increased to $5,000 (from $1,000) and corporate fines have reportedly increased to $10,000 (from $5,000).
Last month, Ms Swift gave her fans a re-recording of her successful 2012 album ‘Red.’ After releasing ‘Fearless (Taylor’s Version)’ in April, this is her second rerecorded album.
