The event turned into a COVID-19 super spreader when around 100 attendees tested positive for COVID-19 at a fan gathering in Sydney, Australia in honor of Taylor Swift’s recent release of “Red (Taylor’s Version).” According to Fox News, fans who attended the ‘On Repeat: Taylor Swift Red Party’ on December 10 in Sydney to celebrate the singer’s ‘Red (Taylor’s Version)’ were told to “immediately get tested” and isolate for seven days after “at least 97 positive cases” were confirmed. The gathering became a COVID-19 super spreader. The pop star, according to speculations, did not attend the celebration.
The Metro Theatre in Sydney has been identified as a “new area of concern” by the New South Wales Health Department, after Taylor Swift’s rerelease of “Red.”
According to a public health recommendation issued by NSW and cited by Fox News, “all household connections of close contacts should be tested and self-isolate until everyone in the home gets a negative result.”
According to the statement, “NSW Health is contacting 600 people who attended Metro Theatre at this time and checked in using the QR code, asking them and members of their households to be tested and follow public health advice.”
“Anyone who attended but did not check in using the QR code should be tested and isolated immediately,” the caution reads, “and the community should ensure that other potential attendees are aware of this guidance.”
“NSW Health is reminding everyone of the importance of maintaining COVID-safe practices since COVID transmission happens during social events throughout the Christmas season,” the statement concludes.
People have also been warned about the consequences if they “do not follow the isolation, testing, and quarantine protocols, “the officials said. Individual fines have allegedly increased to USD 5,000 (from $1,000), while corporate fines have reportedly increased to USD 10,000. (from USD 5,000). Swift offered her fans a re-recording of her smash 2012 album ‘Red’ last month. This is her second re recorded album, after the release of ‘Fearless (Taylor’s Version)’ in April.
Scooter Braun, her music manager, purchased the masters of her previous six albums in 2019, and the singer was inspired to re-record them. Her desire was to retake control of her career by reworking the original melodies. Swift’s debut album, ‘Taylor Swift,’ her 2010 album ‘Speak Now,’ her 2014 album ‘1989,’ and her 2017 album, ‘Reputation,’ are all in need of re-recording.
