The other members of Go_A have all tested negative for COVID-19, and will perform their rehearsal with a stand in singer. They will also attend their press conference this afternoon, as reported by the EBU. More information on this will be shared when the results of her test come back.

Should Kateryna test positive for COVID-19, she would be unable to perform in the live semi final on Tuesday 18th May. The other members of the band would need to be tested again, and go into quarantine. This means that Ukraine’s back-up performance would be used instead.

We wish Kateryna lots of good health and a negative test result!
