Euro 2020 and Covid: How can I watch with my friends?

Groups of fans celebrated England’s Euro win over Germany on Tuesday in pubs, on the streets and at home, as well as at Wembley Stadium. Wherever you watch the football, guidance and rules remain in place to stop the spread of Covid. But more fans will be admitted to Wembley for the tournament’s final stages. But who can go to Saturday’s game?

England v Ukraine on Saturday will take place in Rome, in front of up to 16,000 fans. The English FA returned its allocated tickets, and advised fans not to travel to the game. UK visitors arriving in Italy currently have to self-isolate for five days. But England supporters who live in Italy or other EU countries – who would not need to quarantine on arrival – can buy tickets. More than 30,000 Brits live in Italy. What about the semis and final at Wembley?

Sixty thousand fans will be admitted to Wembley for these games, or 75% of the stadium’s capacity. Remaining tickets went on sale on Tuesday. Ticket-holders aged 11 or over need to prove they are fully vaccinated via the NHS app, with both doses received at least 14 days beforehand. Those not fully vaccinated must show proof of a negative lateral flow test from the previous 48 hours.

It’s part of the government’s Events Research Programme, which is tracking Covid transmission at large events. It includes Wimbledon, which will have a full capacity crowd for its singles finals. The decision to increase Wembley’s capacity was criticised by the Italian prime minister, who said the final should be moved away from “a country where contagions are growing rapidly”. UK Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden said the upcoming games were “an unforgettable moment in our national recovery from the pandemic”. Either way, the vast majority of fans will be watching on TV.

    An IVD Medical Device is defined in the IVDR as “any medical device which is a reagent, reagent product, calibrator, control material, kit, instrument, apparatus, piece of equipment, software or system, whether used alone or in combination, intended by the manufacturer to be used in vitro for the examination of specimens derived from the human body.

    In vitro diagnostics (IVDs) are tests that can detect disease, conditions and infections. In vitro simply means 'in glass', meaning these tests are typically conducted in test tubes, cassettes and similar equipment, as opposed to in vivo tests, which are conducted in the body itself.

    The IVDR is the new regulatory basis for placing on the market, making available and putting into service in vitro diagnostic medical devices on the European market. It will replace the EU’s current Directive on in vitro diagnostic medical devices (98/79/EC). As a European regulation, it will be effective in all EU member states and EFTA states immediately without need to be transferred into the law of respective states, however national laws may be adapted to back up some requirements in more detail.

    The IVDR came into force on 25 May 2017. Several implementing acts/guidance documents are being issued by the EU commission and are stipulated to complete some of the requirements to be met.
