Those eligible to enter the event will be identified by one of two badges. ‘Fully Vaccinated Individuals’ are defined as those who received their second of two vaccine doses more than two weeks earlier. Those who have only received a single dose are not allowed to attend. ‘Recovered Covid Cases’ are defined as those whose first date of infection passed at least two weeks earlier.
“Entry will only be granted to ticket holders on presentation of one of these badges,” the organisers stated. “Failure to do so will result in entry being denied.”
Health screening will be performed at the point of entry and mask wearing will be compulsory at all times. Communal areas for eating and drinking have been “carefully selected to allow for health protection measures and enhanced sanitation”, said the organisers.
The Bahrain International Circuit hosted two rounds of the world championship last year. The events were held largely without spectators, although a limited number of health workers were permitted to attend.
