She wrote, "Despite being as careful as possible, I'm writing to let you know that I tested positive for COVID-19 this morning. As recommended, I'm now stuck in isolation, sniffling in bed, feeling very upset to have let all you angels down. This weekend had three shows in store, a Norwich outstore show, Latitude and Standon Calling - I had butterflies in my tummy weeks in advance just picturing what it would be like to see your faces again. I'm so sorry to everybody who was looking forward to seeing me play - it's truly heartbreaking but safety and health must be our priority always. We will dance again - I trust that - but for now please stay safe, get vaccinated and wash your hands."
I’ve got some saddening news for you guys - I’m really sorry we’re looking to reschedule the Norwich show - hope that everyone going to these wonderful festivals gets to soak in the atmosphere & have a nice time - stay safe everybody I appreciate you showing up for me always x pic.twitter.com/rGQYWo4CkM— Arlo Parks (@arloparks) July 23, 2021
The positive test result comes a day after Arlo Parks' debut album Collapsed In Sunbeams was nominated for this year's Mercury Prize Award.
