Fieldlab Events used a new phone app called the ‘CoronaCheck’ app to help with accurate test results.
Last weekend, the Netherlands hosted its first piloted dance music festival. It’s been over a year since anyone in the Netherlands has been able to come together to listen to live dance music, until last weekend. Last weekend, the Netherlands held its first piloted dance music event which was approved by the Dutch government. By approving the piloted dance music event, local authorities were able to conduct an array of tests in order to find out whether or not live, large-scale events could be held safely. Authorities used a new phone app called the ‘CoronaCheck’ app to help with accurate test results.
Roughly 3,000 people were allowed to come to the town of Biddinghuizen where attendees were required to be tested for COVID-19 before entering the event. In order to enter the event, a negative test result must be shown. Regardless of the outcome, the test results were entered onto the ‘CoronaCheck’ app via a QR-code. Those who were at previous Fieldlab dance events were required to show negative test results by either a digital or paper document with an ID. Attendees were split up into three various groups with each person wearing a device in order to monitor individual movements and contact patterns. The ‘CoronaCheck’ app will combine all results from all previous Fieldlab piloted dance music events.
Fieldlab Event’s results should be published sometime in April.
