The ‘minimum’ of safety is the ‘vaccination’ supporters will still have to wear masks and keep distance. Allowing anyone in without being vaccinated is increasing the risk factor to anyone else not vaccinated and for illness of a degree to anyone who has had the vaccine. They are still not certain that anyone vaccinated can’t pass it on yet? We must therefore take every precaution we can do to get spectator sports up and running again. It’s some or nothing. If you think it’s an invasion of your civil liberties or you are anti vaccination then, tough. Stay at home and protect your civil rights from there. For those that haven’t been vaccinated yet, I sympathise with you... but it is coming and you’ll be up and running for next season, as long as those lucky enough to see a live game protect what they have been fortunate to have got.

Interesting comments, but most miss the point.

The current poll (although it is not necessarily accurate) if taken at face value would see a drop of 13% in season ticket sales.

The lack of an efficient testing system (they can't get tests back within 72 hours normally) will require people under fifty to buy tickets and hope they pass a test, if not they will have to throw the ticket away. There will be no roll-up on the day of unvaccinated people.

Will the club survive this drop in revenue?

I voted yes on the basis that I would accept the inconvenience of a covid vaccine passport to see some live sport that I'm passionate about in a fantastic venue.

Not being an infectious diseases expert I can't comment on whether a covid vaccine passport would be practical or likely be effective. I was interested in reading the range of views and opinions.

As I see it 14 people on here won't stop screaming about civil liberties etc. Why should my civil liberties be impacted by those tools screaming 'Freedom'? Why shouldn't a pregnant lady who can't have the Vaccine not be able to attend a game, because she is fearfull that she may get covid because some selfish idiot, who has done nothing in their lives to protect civil liberties, refuses to put a stick up their nose?

What's your alternative idea?

The LFT would be administered 48 hours before the public event. If you test positive, then you get a PCR the next day. If you are then confirmed that you have it, then a simple screen shot would get you a credit for another game / money back.

What's your alternative idea?

If you contact Covid the day before the game, then chances are you won't have enough viral load to spread it anyway. Of course you could just lie and say that you took the test. That's a question of integrity though, some have it and some don't.

What's your alternative idea?

Basic rule of thumb I follow is that always have an opposing view to Jeremy Corbyn, Ian Duncan-Smith or Tim Farron on everything and you won't go too far wrong in life.

Who's screaming? Personally I have had the vaccination and it is quite possible I have done something in my life to protect civil liberties or do you want me to carry a certificate proving that as well. Who decides whether the 'idiot' or the 'pregnant lady' is being selfish?

My question was more to do with the ridiculous cost of forcing tests that can just be dipped in your coffee and posted off. Oh, and LFT tests no longer need sticking up your nose if you think people are worried about their nasal liberties.

We've seen recently cricket in India, played at 2 stadiums with players in bubbles. For a few matches the authorities let supporters in, especially when one new fantastic stadium was being opened my Modi himself.

It wasn't long before they stopped spectators coming in and now we see India recording circa 50,000 + new cases a day. Huge population and in many areas very high density of people.

Many other countries are seeing numbers remain at a high level or rise quickly again. The UK numbers, even after schools & Uni's reopened have fallen. Lockdown of sorts, social distancing, vaccine all contributory, but to what extent, but it does look as though the vaccine program is the key factor.

As others have said, we've needed to have vaccinations for travel in the past, against certain illnesses, the over 50's are used to having the "flu jab" annually.

I don't know if the comment about Bill Gates was in jest or not, but if you consider that your car number plate is recorded by police cars, traffic camera's, you draw money out at an ATM, your mobile phone and the apps may record your location and activity already, having a chip in a vaccine is the least of your worries.

What the furlough scheme will have done however is provide HMRC and the Gov with huge new data regarding people, especially the self employed, about business's and people's financial position.

So, if you've had the jab(s) there shouldn't be a problem carrying a vaccine passport, if you want to watch sport, travel, socialise etc. Whatever system Glos use to allow people in we'll wait & see, but the Gov scheme is a pilot and has opposition from the Gov backbenches, who are and have been providing the real opposition to Boris for a while now.

You could accept the fact that the over fifties and at-risk under fifties who the government claim make up 90% of the deaths and 80% of the hospitalisations have been vaccinated or does that make me a 'tool' as you politely put it.

A very evasive answer to my original question.
