Culture Ministry reportedly won’t fund rapid tests for event attendees

A Culture Ministry official tells Channel 12 that the office will not fund rapid coronavirus tests for event organizers to utilize for attendees who have not been vaccinated.

Current health guidelines require all attendees of indoor cultural events to be vaccinated or to have tested negative for the coronavirus beforehand.

Channel 12 reported last week that the Culture Ministry was weighing funding the rapid tests to ease the burden on event halls and planners, but the official speaking to the network today suggests that the office does not have the resources.
