As you will have seen recently, governmental regulations are changing for venues including Craigavon Civic & Conference Centre.
From 13th December 2021, it will be necessary for anyone aged 18+ attending a Conference, Exhibition, Performance, Recording, Rehearsal or Licensed event at The Conference Centre to provide one of the following:
Proof of full vaccination, with the second dose having been given at least 14 days before attending. Acceptable forms of proof include COVIDCert NI certificates (travel certificate must be accompanied by valid Government Issued Photo ID), Covid immunisation record cards and valid Government issued Photo ID), and any official documentation from outside Northern Ireland such as the EU Digital Covid Certificate or the NHS Covid Pass.
OR Proof of a negative Lateral Flow Test taken no more than 48 hours in advance. This will be in the form of an official SMS message which you will receive after completing and registering your Lateral Flow Test result at https://www.gov.uk/report-covid19-result
OR Proof of natural immunity shown by a positive PCR test result for Covid issued between 30 and 180 days earlier. Any self-isolation period must have elapsed before coming to the Venue.
How to upload a lateral flow test
If you are demonstrating your COVID-19 Status using an NHS Lateral Flow Test this should be taken within 48 hours of your arrival at the event you are attending. You can order NHS Lateral Flow Tests at https://www.gov.uk/order-coronavirus-rapid-lateral-flow-tests .
Once you have taken your test, you will need to report your result on the NHS website at https://www.gov.uk/order-coronavirus-rapid-lateral-flow-tests You will receive a text or email notification confirming your negative test result, to present on entry.
A positive result from an NHS Lateral Flow Test means it’s likely you had coronavirus when the test was done. You and anyone you live with must not attend the venue and self-isolate immediately. You are then advised to get a PCR test to confirm your result as soon as possible.
We would ask that you have this information ready on arrival at The Conference Centre. If you are unable, or unwilling to provide any of the above, unfortunately you will not be permitted entry to the venue.
Please note that if you or a member of your party are displaying Covid symptoms or are required to self-isolate, you must not attend.
