In a statement released on Saturday, the Eurovision Song Contest Communications Team have announced that a member of the Polish delegation has returned a positive COVID-19 test during routine testing.
This person had last been at Rotterdam Ahoy on Thursday, when the whole delegation tested negative for the virus. In accordance with health and safety protocols, the member with the positive test has now gone into isolation.
As a precautionary measure, the rest of the Polish delegation will now undergo a PCR test and go into quarantine, meaning they will be unable to attend Sunday’s Turquoise Carpet event in person.
We send the whole delegation good health and best wishes as we approach Eurovision week.
