According to reports, Chicago Public Health Commission Dr. Allison Arwady said her office expected about 200 cases before Lollapalooza began. However it was in fact less than that.

Dr. Allison Arwady said that about sixteen out of a thousand unvaccinated people attending the festival later tested positive for the Coronavirus.  Among the vaccinated the numbers were even better, about four out of ten thousand.

She said the numbers were about where they expected them to be. Arwady stressed some of these people could have contracted the virus either before or after attending Lollapalooza. 

Anyone attending had to show proof of vaccination or a recent negative COVID-19 test.
