Visitors to ExCel for the London International Horse Show (December 16-20) are asked to play their part in helping reduce the spread of Covid by complying with new rules.
All participants in the show, who have moved from their old home in Olympia this year, must show proof of having received two doses of a Covid vaccination at least 14 days in advance, the presence of Covid antibodies or evidence, via email or text, of a negative lateral flow test within 48 hours of the event.
“This will be a quick visual check at the entrance to the venue and no personal data will be recorded or stored,” a spokesman for the show said.
“If you are resident in the UK, you can view your vaccination status via the NHS Covid passport on the NHS app or a hard copy, a passport written by your doctor or directly from the NHS website, not your card provided at the time of vaccination. visitors can show similar proof from their home country. “
All visitors are asked to be respectful of others and not to participate if they experience Covid symptoms such as high temperature, new persistent cough or loss or change in taste and smell. Anyone who isolates themselves or has been in close contact with someone who has Covid or shows symptoms is also asked to stay away.
As part of the London Horse Show Covid rules encourage organizers to wear masks in public areas of the venue.
“Both the London International Horse Show and ExCeL London look forward to welcoming you to a safe and secure event this Christmas,” said the organizers.
“We do everything to create a safe environment for all our visitors. This includes ensuring that there are wide aisles to reduce audience density and improve participant flow. There will also be more entrances that will enable handling of queues. There will be hygiene reminders to regularly wash hands throughout the venue, an improved cleaning regime during periods of open exhibition, and finally, contactless payment will be encouraged.
“We can all play our part in protecting each other.”
The show plans to publish a Covid code of conduct and a list of related frequently asked questions related to the event.
