The festival mandated the wearing of masks at the open-air festival, which was under local and state laws.

“However, we encourage all attendees to wear masks, as not wearing masks consistently and correctly can increase the risk of being infected with COVID-19,” the excerpt continued.

There is no indication whether any other artist at Rolling Loud has already tested positive for COVID-19.
