    Fall Out Boy have pulled out of two Hella Mega tour dates due to an “abundance of caution” after a tour member tested positive for Covid-19.

    Well that definitely sucks. I'll be there but I'm not at all thrilled.

    Couldn't they just get tested and isolate themselves? I'm not sure how it works in America if there are more cases.

    If someone on their team got exposed and tested positive, it puts everybody around them in their “bubble” at potential risk. It would take a few days to know if anyone else would test positive, hence them pulling out of these two shows, to see if anyone else tests positive during that time.

    Thanks for the info! I'm trying to figure out why some countries only need you to have a test valid from before 72h up to an event (a flight for example), and others require two tests, one more that would date back 5 days prior to another (or something like that). Of course that's good they're avoiding any danger with that.

    To be frank, the negative tests are simply not an accurate read for entry to an event. It’s only a snapshot in time. You could be exposed to COVID today, test negative tomorrow, and become infected the day after that, and still have spread the virus even though you tested negative.

    Exactly, quite the same to my mind - although from what I've read the virus doesn't really transmit in before like a few days in your body, so that's why the double testing with the one being valid only for 72h and another from 5 days before - that seems to work. It's all difficult to grasp of course, glad to be vaccinated already.
