“Well, we don’t know yet. As I said today, I asked Dr. D to put together a group of folks, including business owners, to talk about what that would look like for us.

A “vaccine passport” is a digital or paper document that show you have received the COVID-19 vaccine. Europe and U.S. states like California and New York created official digital credentials that let you verify your COVID-19 immunization record and convert it into a scannable QR code you can pull up on your cellphone.
