A person in St. Vincent‘s “camp” has tested positive for COVID-19.

In a statement posted Wednesday, the “Los Ageless” rocker writes, “Despite vigilant and strict adherence to COVID protocols including vaccinations and indoor masking requirements, a member of the St. Vincent camp has tested positive.”

As a result, St. Vincent is pulling out of the ironically named Corona Capital festival, set to take place this weekend in Mexico City.

“As disappointing and difficult as this decision has been, the safety of all those playing an attending the festival comes first,” the statement reads.

Corona Capital, which also includes Tame Impala, Royal Blood and Twenty One Pilots on the bill, was St. Vincent’s last live date scheduled for 2021. She’ll return to the live stage in February to play Arizona’s Innings Festival.
