  • Digital Pass Part of NY’s Safe Reopening

  • Enjoying live theatre and concerts, and returning to your favorite restaurants or bars are a possibility once again with the Excelsior Pass. The Excelsior Pass supports the safe reopening of New York’s businesses by providing a free, fast and secure way to present digital proof that you’ve been vaccinated for COVID-19 or that you have tested negative for the coronavirus. Think of it as a mobile airline boarding pass, but for proving you have received a COVID-19 vaccination or negative test. You can store your information, gathered onto a “pass”, on your smartphone with the Excelsior Pass Wallet app, available for free from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. You can also print your pass from the Excelsior Pass website.

    Your data is private and secure with Excelsior Pass. Your personal information will not be used for sales or marketing purposes, or shared with a third party other than for the sole purpose of validating COVID-19 vaccination or test results.

    Businesses can scan and validate your pass to ensure you meet COVID-19 vaccination or testing requirements for entry. Along with your pass, you’ll be asked to show a photo ID that shows your name and birth date to verify that the pass belongs to you. Adults may hold passes for accompanying minors. Once you and your party enter an establishment, you will still be asked to follow state and CDC guidelines regarding social distancing, face coverings and hand washing.

    Participation in Excelsior Pass is voluntary. New Yorkers can always show alternate proof of vaccination or testing, like another mobile application or paper documentation.
