So they're bringing back masks in shops snd on public transport from next week. When is next week? They announced it yesterday so does next week mean from tomorrow? You'd think they'd give a date instead of a vague "next week".

I havent been asked. Can i ask to those that have been asked did they ask for ID as well or just the pass? As if they didnt ask for ID its abit pointless could be anyones barcodes

Cursory glance at your phone screen showing the NHS QR code, and that's it. Could honestly have been any old screen grab of a QR code and they'd have waved you through.

I have a friend who was invited to a Match at Anfield in a Hospitality Box and they had to show a negative lateral flow test. I'm not sure if this is stadium wide or just for Hospitality areas of the stadium.

I take 2 tests a week making sure one is the night before our match.

Vaccination Passports imminent according to reports.not sure how they would be able to check 41,000+ Covid Passes at the Gates and even bigger problems at stadiums like Old Trafford.

Surely there are so many empty seats at every game that there shouldn't be a problem?

If you want to set out to get past the system, it’s easy anyway. You can upload a test as negative without even taking it, so if you want to get round it, it’s easy enough to do with your own ID.
It’s a very light barrier to reduce risk, people who want to get round it can. It simply prompts those who do respect it to be cautious.

It is a light barrier. But even adding a light barrier to the current entry process would be a nightmare. Where do they stand? Outside presumably?

We travel a fair way each game so it arrival time varies but queues at 2.40 for a 3pm kick off can be 10 mins. With any sort of additional checks this will go up massively surely?

Actually still my 2nd jab card in my wallet (had it in the Holte Suite). I presume that's not allowed to be shown by whoever is viewing it even though that would probably speed up the process a fair bit (as if you've had a 2nd dose you'v obviously had the first one).
